  • What's the story? Are you suggesting the Saville Inquiry is an excuse or a reason for his 'low' number of days?

  • "The story" is that there isn't one. Typical journo's padding for a quiet Monday. Might as well ask how many times Jackson has sat in the Appeal Court last year (answer - 0) while doing his costs review.

  • The Supreme Court is supposed to consist of twelve full time Justices. If Lord Saville has writer's block and requires so much extra time to complete his report into Bloody Sunday, why did he make himself available last summer? It does not seem fair that the burden is not being shared equally.
    In relation to Lord Justice Jackson's report, it was 550+ pages with a prelimnary report of almost 1000 pages, yet he completed it within 12 months. The Bloody Sunday Inquiry commenced in 1998 and there has been no oral evidence since 2004.

  • In its first term the SCJ had nothing to do for nearly one day in three. Is that not a story?
