Today’s big news is that Chief Justice Paul de Jersey has been anointed the 26th Governor of Queensland – an excellent appointment. The Queensland Law Society has graciously welcomed the appointment.

A few years ago, I once instructed Counsel (a barrister) before the Chief Justice. Back then  I was a young and inexperienced guy just trying to find his feet in the legal profession. The Chief Justice commented to Counsel that I was very well dressed. That I think was his way of being nice to a young fellow. It certainly made my day. To me, that incident shows that he is a magnanimous person. 

Unlike some appointments to such positions, the people of Queensland can be assured that  Paul de Jersey will be no political activist.
