The barrier in front of politicisation of the Supreme Court is that most of its decisions can be reversed by the executive through the legislature, if it can command a a majority.

It would be perfectly possible to pass a law that would make it legal to prorogue Parliament for any length of time and for any reason. In the same way it would be perfectly possible and perfectly legal to abolish any human rights legislation or sommon law rights. Getting out of the EU would make that a lot easier.

Not having any Constitution does have its dangers.
