  • my impression, having read several judgments of Stephen Sedley in the employment field, is that his political sympathies were all too obvious.

  • Slams? Hits back? Hardly! This is the standard academic debate, not a boxing match. Two sides with resolvable opposing views, not two fighters trying to lay each other out.

    For me this raises a legitimate question about the fundamentals of our legal system; is a judge truly objective? And where does the political arena end and the judicial arena begin? Tough questions with answers that tend to annoy people, but ultimately, we’re the better for asking them!

  • I think the first paragraph of this article should end 'were wrong' rather than 'was wrong'.
