It’s a decision which has Judge Judy spewing.
Last week the freedom fighting Abbott government cracked down on tweed-vested bird-watching vigilantes. In yet more evidence their approach to policy-making is best described as ‘freestyling’, they have announced this morning that all local, federal and high court judges will need to acquire a coal mine within seven days or face redundancy.
The sweeping reforms will have ramifications for the nation’s law students. Core texts Principles and Practice of Australian Law, The Australian Constitution, and Environmental Law in Australia (8th Edition) will be replaced by The World of Mining, A Text-Book Of Coal Mining- With Illustrations, and A Guide To Managing Coal Mines For Judges.
