  • It's not surprising that he has hoovered up this role

  • Well, there was a bit of a vacuum in Neuberger's absence.

  • I remember him when he was plain old David Nueberger with hair.

  • I've always wondered why do judges need to move like that between the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.
    It seems impossible that no other judge from the Court of Appeal was good enough to fill in the vacancy felt. Of course we don't have the names of the other candidates, but I am sure all of them would be able to do an excellent job had they been chosen to become Master of the Rolls. No doubt though Dyson will be a very good Master of the Rolls.
    I also have the same problem regarding the replacement of Lord Phillips by Lord Neuberger. Surely Lady Hale or Lord Mance would make good presidents so why choose someone who hasn't been a Supreme Court justice and presumably doesn't know much about the inner workings of the court? Neuberger left to become Master of the Rolls because he thought (as he reportedly has claimed) that the creation of the Supreme Court was a decision taken "during a glass of brandy"! What changed during these last two years and he decided that now it would be good to join the Supreme court bench again? Why was he chosen over Hale and Mance?
    It would really be interesting to know how these decisions are taken and why the lucky applicant is chosen over the others.

  • Good point Angie but can I remind you that these posts are about hoovers and other domestic appliances.
    Thank you.

  • I don't think Dyson is the man for the job. There is a good chance he will make a right miele of it.

  • If Neuberger DID INDEED TELL THE TRUTH about the role of a glass of brandy in the creation of the Supreme court then that must be celebrated as the moment that finally came to be noted as confirming the truth about English law! Writing this comment on the Tuesday when most Fleet Street titles are certainly very downbeat about Ed Miliband as a future leader of the Country, it is a most sobering season for the sinking Society.
    So surel is the sinking trend that the Daily Mail has now run as many as three big feature pieces on aspects of the Uncaring Britain. The allegedly drunken origins of the Supreme Court's creation merely confirm the fact that in all spheres of Society, universal ethical and moral standards are either getting very thin or are not even traceable any more.
    If Ed Miliband sinks as the Blaired Party leader then that will not constitute either a shocking thing nor will that mark a real difference in the political fortunes of the party whose banner this Miliband flaunts. Most people in society are held to ransom buy corrupt self seeking professionals poising as officers and gentle people male and female who are doing a good job.
    Most ordinary people have lost all confidence in post holders everywhere. The view that the judiciary is nakedly self-serving and callously placed and prompted shows that the late Professor Griffith of the London School of Economics was absolutely right in his very well known skepticism about the parasites in the Judiciary.
    Question is who will create a just [sic] environment in the various installations that are kept in place under guises of justice!

  • Thanks Muhammad. But look on the bright side, you can always Shake-n-Vac and put the freshness back into our judiciary.
