Seems that Sir Nicholas Wall is to be appointed (at the very last moment after being referred back for reconsideration) as the new President of the Family Division of the High Court of Justice. It looks as if, as I wondered before, that the Judicial Appointments Commission have not bottled it and have made power listen to truth.

A barrister in London has kindly elucidated the intricate dance steps of the little known Judicial Appointments Commission & Lord Chancellor quadrille or the Straw-Wall dance. The steps include the double side-step, the full and half bluff, the slow and the very slow drag and teeter all danced to the tune of the Nightmare Song.
