MP Douglas Carswell says Judiciary looking like an 'ass'

Frustration in parliament reached new heights on Friday when the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, took the unprecedented step of criticising MPs for "flouting court orders" in the Commons.

Tory MP Douglas Carswell said he was confident the speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, would ensure there was a debate. He said: "I think the problem is that the judiciary is making itself look a bit of an ass. There is something poetic about both the bill of rights and Twitter pointing towards the supremacy of the people.

My comment: If you look like an ass, walk like an ass, act like an ass and talk like an ass, as many judges do, then you can't blame people for thinking you are an ass. Giving out injunctions/super injunctions like confetti may yet come back to bite them on the ass. Pun intended.  

In addition, Lord Judge criticising MPs was as daft as a Solicitor's recent decision to take twitter on. Don't they realise that all they have done is pour petrol on their respective fires.
