No Dodgy Syrups in Civil Court Cases.

A Judge should convey an impress of wisdom and gravitas at all time. So why do british High Court judges have to wear comedy wigs?

We're not sure whether the news that soon judges in civil law cases will no longer be required to wear those ridiculous horsehair wigs is a good thing or not.

The question is will the change pressure judges into abandoning also their silk stockings, suspenders and waspie waist-cincher. Or, will the end of this anachronism make them feel liberated enough to choose some entirely more fetching headwear in auburn or blonde from one of those specialist shops for men of certain inclinations we find in the seedy part of town.
