The designation ‘SC’ is completely appropriate and suited as a means of recognising and signalling excellence in a mature, independent legal profession in which the decisions of English courts have no superior status in terms of precedent than those of any other common law jurisdiction. Prior to the Queen’s death, this state last had KCs at a time when our society was not the richly diverse multicultural one it has become in the ensuing 70 years.”
– Last year, Chief Justice Bell himself wandered into orthodox luvvie editorialising
richly diverse multicultural
Here we go again, a dripping turducken of cultural cringe and white guilt, trussed with the apron strings of its own mummy issues, genuflecting before the Exotic and Sinless Other and begging to have what’s left of its once-respected traditions stuffed up its own @rse.
No, we are not multicultural. We are multiethnic, multiracial, sure, but monocultural, and that blind-justice, English-Common-Law thingo can be thanked for a peaceful politic, in contrast to the endless ethnic tensions, bloody coups and republican revolutions that smoulder everywhere else accross the globe.
Or, at least we always have been peaceful and predictable, before the Australia Corporation was seized by these revisionist Quislings.
Nice bit of helpful bush lawyering there from the CJ.
No, it wasn’t a public statement. It was arguably worse: a private attempt to intimidate a parliamentarian. Harrison should be sacked.
Presumably the (not so) eminent jurist sent his email to the politician shortly before dashing off to (no, I won’t identify it CL, so as to spare you any potential legal dificulties).
This is what happens when you have stupid gutless collectivist politicians in charge. Minimax and his clown show wouldn’t dare censure the eminent jurist, so expect more of this sanctimonious hypocritical and unprofessional idiocy.
Untouchable, unelected, unaccountable scum.
I wonder if Justice Harrison would be prepared to put all his current and future earnings and assets and those of all his heirs on the line as guarantee that his assertion that the voice is harmless, to compensate those taxpayers and citizens who when they vote for this amendment to the constitution, will very much be doing that without a government sinecure.
Everything has been captured by the Left, including the judiciary.
The Fabian great plan has reached completion.
That’s all folks, we’re done.
So what happens to Ian Harrison now? Unethical doctors are suspended and then possibly deregistered. Is there a review of Harrison’s judgements to see if there is a pattern of bias?
It is a simple matter of human decency. Your position, and the position of your party, is niggardly and cruel and mean-spirited.
If he was on the wrong team, he’d be gone now for using the “n”word – like that poor schmuck some years ago overseas…
“richly diverse” : ad nauseam
I wonder what these sanctimonious men were like as young boys.
But a surprise in each man’s writings:
the use of the word “niggardly” (Fat Tony reminds)
“…telling a magistrate, judge or justice how to do his or her job…” – the Chief Justice evidently felt no need to use a modern “their job”.
And Bruce of Newcastle may be right.
We’re completely stuffed
The dripping condescension of that letter. As if his sole word should settle the matter beyond any doubt or discussion. Obviously some of the wig-wearers get their heads turned by the deference we show to judges.
He will be lauded and promoted.Remember thanks to the Libs all the levers of government belong to Labor
So one of the SC judges is outed as a raving, emotional leftwing ideologue.
When I say Elected Judges Now, midwitted people say “durrr but then you”ll get politicians”. What do you think you have now?
Sorry late to this party but wow and well done to Justice Bell’s rebuke.
Again where is the Liberal/Nationals. Immediately a notice to front parliament for contempt should have been tabled even if it fails, Justices opinions on current affairs hold no more weight than an MP’s and approaching one should be treated as if one side had contacted the judges chambers on a matter he was presiding over. Totally inappropriate.
