  • n the middle of one of the biggest shake ups of the court system, case financing and the end of legal aid reform is this really what is needed?
    Ken Clarke may not be the most popular choice but at least he was willing to listen, at least he was a lawyer who understood the demands that the profession has.
    What would qualify Grayling to be Justice Monister? Last I heard he was opposing the judiciary in its decision to force B&B owners to allow a gay couple to stay. Put me right if I am wrong, but this is a ridicuolous appointment and smacks of Cameron shuffling around the jobs as easily as you shuffle a deck of cards.

  • Interesting to note too that ex-SJ Berwin partner, rich boy par excellence, and the man given the job of reforming legal aid, Jonathan Djanogly, has been dumped from the MoJ and now returned to the back benches. This could mean legal aid changes being speeded up, such as Best Value Tendering.

    Re. a non-lawyer MoJ chief - seems like a good idea to me. Need some external objectivity.

  • Politics, dear chaps, is not milieu which scrupulously deals out even breaks for one and all. *The reshuiffle is motivated by feverish greed and spurred by Tory spite.

  • Grayling will discover a huge HMCTS backlog and wonder why. Doh! Caused by him at the DWP, Atos and JobCentre Plus sanctions being appealed.
