Judicial appointments being party specific, I suppose. Aren't they promising to do something about that? I know. Promises, promises...

VB: Because people were members of a political party before they became judges, doesn't mean they won't be good judges. Oh yeah?

MLOD staying silent for the moment, looking pained, at slurs thrown in the direction of Fine Gael by RBB.

Judges, I suppose, were children once. A pity they ever grew up to plague the world.

Nurses and doctors are leaving the country because of pay and conditions. No sign of the judges joining them so far.

VB thinks that Judges are not held enough to account over bad judgements. DR Barry thinks politicians should not criticize judges, thinks it's a dangerous road to go down.

Barry thinks that the government should be set to one side where judges are concerned. Judge Dredd coming to a town near you shortly.
