Worries about latest choice for child abuse inquiry chair
Minister Theresa May has taken the sensible step of ensuring that her new appointment is as far removed from the UK establishment as possible while still being familiar with English common law systems. However, I see that criticisms have been levelled at Justice Lowell Goddard in her home country of New Zealand. While any posting on the Web should be taken with a pinch of salt, I trust that the good lady will be tasked with the specific allegations of covering-up when she comes before Keith Vaz's select committee for approval.
