The former Master of the Rolls has said Britain is living through “dangerous times” and that his bags are “metaphorically” packed.
In an interview with the JC, John Dyson, 76, said he thought Brexit has worsened divisions in society.
Lord Dyson, who was a justice of the Supreme Court for more than two years, also affirmed his pride in his Jewish identity and Zionism — but revealed “a sense of insecurity” related to his Jewishness.
He said: “I’m just very conscious of being Jewish... I really wanted to say this publicly because when I mention it to non-Jewish friends they can’t believe it.
“They ask how can someone like [me], who is seen as an establishment figure, well embedded in English society… how can you have these feelings of insecurity? Yet I’ve found so many successful [Jewish] people in professions of all kinds say the same thing.”
His memoir, A Judge’s Journey, was published last month.
