Judge blocks legal challenge over government ‘failure’ to investigate potential Russian election interference

A bid to launch a legal challenge over the government’s alleged failure to investigate potential Russian interference in British elections has failed.

Following a hearing at the High Court on Tuesday, a judge ruled that the case brought by a cross-party group of MPs and peers was “unarguable”.

Mr Justice Swift refused to give permission for a full hearing of their case, adding: “The claimants’ concerns exist at the level of politics, not as a matter of law.”
