The summary of cabinet outcomes has one little nugget of news:

Cabinet agreed to endorse the appointment of Mr John Nield and Ms Margatet Sidis as acting judges of the Supreme Court.

Comes a time when someone’s been acting for so long making them permanent looks like a good idea. (and maybe spelling Margaret Sidis name right would help too)

I don’t know much about Justice Sidis however I am familiar with the judgements and sentences handed down by Justice Nield. Permanency for Justice Nield? Whilst the thought of this may give Ben Aulich, that fearless searcher for justice, Higgins blood pressure, I say bring it on!
