From the BBC, a predictable propaganda piece.
We already have a feminist prime minister – David Cameron was the previous one – a feminist Home Secretary (Amber Rudd), and a feminist head of the CPS (Alison Saunders). Now the most senior judge in the land is Baroness Hale, a woman who has spent much of the last eight years wittering on about the ‘need’ for more diversity in the judiciary – in plain English, the ‘need’ for more women, regardless of merit, and the proportions of capable men and women wishing to pursue such careers. As always, the barriers to entry have been lowered to enable this direction of travel, including appointing legal academics (most of whom are female) as judges.
The biographies of the Supreme Court Justices are here. The idea that Lady Hale might objectively be the best candidate (among 11) for the position of president is laughable. A man with the same background wouldn’t have had a hope of becoming a Supreme Court Justice in the first place. From her biography:
A home maker as well as a judge, she thoroughly enjoyed helping the artists and architects create a new home for The Supreme Court.
Well, that’s nice. A feminist part-timer with an interest in interior decoration now heads the highest court in the land. What could possibly go wrong?
