Quote of the Day - Life is just a bag of tricks.
In his article, the "Silk" nominated several judges in various categories, including a story about nicked (stolen) pictures. The whole article is a hoot.
He had this to say about Beds: "When considering a charge of smuggling animals into the country, he stated: “There is no non-culpable explanation for monkeys in your underpants.” The runner-up was Lord Hoffmann, who recognised, in dismissing a privacy claim in the House of Lords, that “having to take off your clothes in front of a couple of prison officers is not to everyone’s taste”. Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, Master of the Rolls, wondered whether complex and defective regulations governing those who dig up the roads were “the product of a demented computer”. And a special mention for the ruling by the Ohio Court of Appeals that the Constitution confers on a person a right to bark at a police dog — so long as the animal started it."
