ONE of England's most senior judges, Vice-Chancellor Sir Richard Scott, has played to the gallery by calling for the abolition of wigs. Sir Scott says judges who wear wigs look out of touch, "antiquated and foolish" and are like "diehards who still wear top hats in the hunting field" out of a "hankering for the past and tribal badges of status". Judges who revere their head gear are like those who ask who Gazza is, he adds. Lord Irvine of Lairg once complained his wig "weighs a ton". And as Sir Scott also explains, wigs are "uncomfortable, scratchy and of questionable hygienic quality, even if they no longer provide a home for a variety of tiny animals".
