Chief Justice Murrell begins the labours of Hercules

By johnboy - 15 November 2013 2

The ABC has word on the new Chief Justice’s efforts to clean out the Augean Stables we call the ACT Supreme Court.

Short of diverting a river, and with the odds of a second Mullocalypse remote, it’s going to be a big ask.

She’s planning a blitz, but wants the work done by the existing judges which suggests some planned changes to the culture.

We hope it’s not too much for their honours.

What’s Your opinion?

So the wheels of justice are grinding yet exceedingly more slowly. Perhaps we could import Judge Judy of daytime television fame for a few months. Admission could be charged to add a few shekels to the community chest and a uniquely Canberran TV show could be produced and syndicated. The possibilities are endless. We should be treating our recidivist ratbags as a resource rather than a drain on the public purse.
Lunchtime hearings could be conducted at a club near you and a bit of spirited audience participation utilised to aid in sentencing. Sentencing offenders to a period of ashtray cleaning and puke removal while administering a modicum of vigorous rib tickling with pool cues should get the punters in.
Some practice along the lines of a slave auction would also make far more effective use of wrongdoers and miscreants and save the exorbitant costs of imprisonment. Let’s be a bit more creative in our bogan bashing.

I would say more like that of Sisyphus – Hercules was able to complete his task whereas Sisyphus was forever doomed to push a large rock up a mountainl…..or in modern parlance “pushing s#%@ uphill”.
