Jungle Judges

Graeme Williams QC:

In the years shortly before I embarked on practice at the bar in 1960, there were several very bad Hugh Court, and County Court, judges.  Many of the latter had been Judges in the British Colonies, which were then gaining their independence and getting rid of their English Judges, who were regarded as part of the former Colonial regime; they were known to the Bar as ‘Jungle Judges’.   (p. 41, “A short book of Bad Judges”)
