On being a Judge

The task of the right hand of the Monarch is to ensure that no enduring sense of injustice be allowed to disturb the sound of value being added to the Realm.

If you do not like it, it is open to you move to a Republic, where the mob is more heavily or genuinely consulted about matters of Justice. Philosophy is a French malady. The end result is a more self satisfied class of Magistrate. Smugness is also a French malady.

The Monarch does not care or even encourages, if wise, some anarchy by those of the Magistracy. Magi. Wise persons. Just do not trumpet your acts of mercy and kindness. They will be even more strongly heard in the corridors of power. Power is not yours. It has been granted to you. It becomes you to be humble?

Several of my contemporaries are Judges of the High Court and Circuit Court in Ireland. Who am I?
