UK Supreme Court

No I didn't make a typo on that title. In the recent Cabinet reshuffle it was announced the intention of doing away with the Law Lords and creating a Supreme Court. Well today the government finally came up with some proposals. This BBC article gives some of the details. From the looks of things it sounds dreadful. Tony Blair once again shows his complete inability to grasp that to change something one does not have to act like a bull in a china shop. I mean, what is wrong with keeping the position of Lord Chancellor, just altering the role of the office? It would hardly be the first time the role has changed.

I am equally certain as well that we will learn all the wrong lessons from the US. But then, I am generally pessimistic where the constitutional skills of this government are concerned.
