Sunday Review: 16 December

I was not able to do a Saturday review…

Lord Falconer, Head of Legal reports, is against the extension of detention to 42 days. The Attorney General of the web is puzzled about this death bed conversion and speculates on whether Falconer has sorted out his pension ‘issues’.

Geeklawyer gets mauled by a Leopard – but LawMinx thought he was getting married to a Leopard. Such is the life of UK Law blawgers. By a bizarre co-incidence it appears that both Ruthie and VM are suffering from some strange illness. Reactionary Snob plans to do some fisking about Straw’s statements on liberty doing well under the last decade of Labour leadership. Pupillage Chronicles finds out that there is ‘never a right way of doing things’. Lo-fi Librarian reflects on facebook Whales. Consilio has two new Editors: Richard Ramsay and Peter Groves. Both are prolific writers. Richard Ramsay completed a magnum opus on the Neuberger report (See Consilio) and has developed a taste for unusual outfits.
