Sir Geoffrey Palmer: the fourth branch of government

By Steven | May 10, 2010

A sentence from the Herald on Sunday’s story about Louise Nicolas’s objections to Clint Rickards’ presence of the duty solicitor roster caught my eye:

A lawyer, who did not want to be named for fear of punishment from the Law Commission, said there were many people at the courthouse “who don’t want the guy in the building”.

I knew that the Law Commission under Sir Geoffrey had a far-reaching agenda, but I didn’t know it was that far-reaching.

    I’m surprised how these lawyers are able to work with him if they’re so aggrieved by his presence. Does he have horns?
