Only for us to find out this morning that this story is a fabrication by the Telegraph, described by Joyce himself as "misinformation".

That may be the "official" way, but in Queensland judges have routinely been "forced to resign" for other than misbehaviour or incapacity. And as the executive controls the purse, this serves as a further unequal arrangement.

This thread has become rather political, so let's close it, and commence Part II.
