Judges need to be independent of both politicians and politics. What’s become clear now is that a separate Branch of Government isn’t enough, if they’re still named by politicians, or subject to politics themselves whether by being elected or using the Bench to attempt to influence politics ultra vires. ‘Judge Bad Faith’ will be overturned on appeal (or will he?); but he and those like him shouldn’t be judges in the first place. How can we get judges without them being elected, named by the elected, or themselves (would-be) politicians?
How can we?
