    So you do accept there are low performing Judges then..................

    Judges can always be reappointed but let Govt of the day do it.

    I accept the importance of judicial independence. “Low performance” is also not a thing in the Judiciary”.

    Governments should not even appoint judges in the first place. Governments agenda is political and judges should not be political. Politicians obviously prefer to appoint judges with similar political views to them. This is just bad.

    It’s fundamental in a democracy that the people do NOT select who applies the laws that the people want to protect them?

    What a strange view. We own the country.

    Yes, it is. It's also time to end the politician for life system too.

    Set term limits on both.
