Tories upset over past partisan comments from Supreme Court advisory board member

The Twitter account of Susan Ursel, a member of the ‘non-partisan’ advisory panel for selecting Supreme Court judge candidates, contains a number of anti-Conservative tweets.

Comments made on social media by Susan Ursel, left, a member of the Supreme Court advisory board, has Conservative MP Michael Cooper calling on Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to justify how someone with 'recent partisan engagement ended up being on an advisory committee that is supposed to be independent and non-partisan in nature.'
