His understanding of former raises real issues and, as for latter, his lead judgment in Jones v Kaney is best summed-up by referring to the tour de force of the two powerful, reasoned dissents (Lord Hope and Lady Hale) – see last page of Lady Hale’s dissent ; says it all. A case of a judge making law, not applying 400 years of precedent and judicial activism at its worse, Reply Link Anonymous 10 May 2012 at 18:55 Agreed, an d would be nice to see Hale as Lady Pressie take over. However, Hope is an excellent jurist, with GSOH and wit. Guess, power of retirement jaunt in ME too powerful to ignore ? Lawyers and Bankers – just luv them. Nice work if you can get it but would have been nice if he put something back into London …………….. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
