That’s Not Going To Make Them Feel Like ‘Our Judges’…

The judiciary needs to be more diverse so that the public feel those on the bench are genuinely “our judges” rather than “beings from another planet”, the president of the supreme court has said.

What’ll do the trick is far, far fewer sentences and decisions like these from the existing judiciary.

Women working in law and other professions are increasingly aware and resentful of earning less than men, said Hale, who is the court’s first female president since its creation 10 years ago.

Isn’t that, ummm, illegal? Yes.

But of course, the reasons they are earning less than men aren’t because anyone’s breaking the law…

“We do have in this country a gender pay gap to worry about,” she said. “The more pay is [delivered] through individual negotiation rather than collective agreement, the greater the risk of imbalance.

People paid vast sums of money to argue their clients’ side in court, no matter how hopeless, are just helpless babes in the woods bamboozled by The Man. It seems.

“[Women] are just waking up to the fact that they are not being paid as much. I have heard terrible stories about even successful women barristers being offered out by their [chamber] clerks at less than their male equivalents. That’s an area where there’s still work to do.”

Who’d hire her as a barrister, if she can’t negotiate her own salary?

So, if we do further ‘diversify’ the judiciary, what sort of sterling service can we expect as a result? What good has Hale actually done?

“I’m proud of the [article 50, Gina] Miller case because it was a classic constitutional issue about what the government could do and what parliament could do,” Hale explained. “It was reminiscent of the 17th-century battle between parliament and the king. We were reinforcing principles that had been established then.”

*rolls eyes*

    That Gina Miller started all this, the troublesome little mare I’d like to put her over my knee and give her a sound spanking that should teach her.

    “The blueprint, to be published in April, will initially be advisory but could become mandatory if changes to stations are not made.”

    What? Sounds like James Goddard is correct: Soubry et al are Nazis

      Nothing is EVER voluntary, if the Establishment desires it.
