I have been concerned about the subtle damage to the independence of the judiciary by the changes, or as Blair and co called it 'modernisation', of our judicial system. Leaving aside the change from Lord Chancellor to Justice Minister, seemingly innocuous but actually quite profound, was the much more affective imposition of management roles onto judges. This made them complicit in decisions which, as the DJ is bravely arguing, compromise justice. Her case is likely to fail on legal grounds when this is a matter which should be brought into the public domain by our professional bodies so that Parliament, currently so keen to demand respect for it's role, can act.
