Reply Link Gregory Valia 30 July 2009 at 07:05 Surely the best candidate must be Ronald Thwaites QC and such an appointment would also accord with the overriding objective and the court’s attempt to create a level playing field-He has not lost a jury libel action in six years, so the best place for him must be the bench. In fairness to The Honourable Justice Eady, I am sure that his decisions in the recent trial were an attempt to create a handicapping system in his court. Maybe His Lordship can swap places with a Mr Justice Thwaites and resume his extremely successful career as a trial advocate.

In my privacy case concerning a book I had published – McKennitt verses Ash, which I had to defend myself at the last minute because of lack of funds, I feel this was especially true. Eady even stated in his judgement that he had to take McKennitt’s fame into account and the fact that she donated anyonymously to charities. Reply Link Anonymous 30 July 2009 at 15:47 Sure, sure.
