This blog reported that the august judge had himself a little rant from the bench over the case of one Lucien McClearley, 31, an illegal immigrant from Jamaica, for drugs offences, whom he jailed for two years after being found in possession of £7,200 worth of cannabis. The judge called the immigration system lax and blamed immigration for much of our vast national debt. (That makes him hero to this blog, of course!)
The powers-that-be don't take kindly to such judicial insubordination and preparations were made to slap him down.
Today the Lord Chief Justice has pronounced on the case. He has given Judge Trigger "formal advice".
That is what's known in court as a "walk out" result.
