Stacking the Supremes

27 Feb

The appointment of three new UK Supreme Court judges has been announced, after the customary advance leaking tipping and briefing.

There is some discussion about whether the Government was pushing for another female Supreme Court Judge: some might say,  ‘If not – why not ?’ – and given that Mr Cameron’s ecclesiological analysis famously includes female bishops, this must seem plausible. Since Lady Arden is obviously able and available, can it really be a sufficient explanation that ‘But Lord Mance her husband is already on the Court’ ? Perhaps there is a ‘You don’t push us around’ message being sent out here, given recent Government murmurings against Judicial Review ?
