This, unexpectedly, made me proud to be British. These Judges are so far removed from my life, but I felt glad that they are there. They have prevented some of the worst excesses of our governments, and long may they do so. Our gut reaction to, for example, terrorist situations, might be "lock 'em up and throw away the key", but if we are locking people up without providing them with, either evidence against them, or the opportunity to defend themselves, then we are on VERY shaky ground. Just imagine if it happened to one of your kin. It all looks a bit different then.....doesn't it?
