In this post we catch up on what our fellow bloggers have been saying about the Court (as well as about UKSC Blog). 

There is an entertaining reflection on the UK Supreme Court under the heading “Tony Blair’s Political Fix” on the Birmingham Post Blog by Chris Game of the Institute of Local Government Studies.  An interesting blog about issues relating to McKenzie friends (those who assist litigants in court – see Wikipedia for some background) has a post about the case of Re B (A Child).

We also came across this comment a few weeks ago on PrawfsBlawg – a US blog which gives this description of itself  “Where Intellectual Honesty Has (Almost Always) Trumped Partisanship — Albeit in a Kind of Boring Way Until Recently — Since 2005”.   There is also a long post about the Court on the “Wash Park Prophet” blog – a blog which gives us perspectives on the world from Denver, Colorado.

We also note that the Italian Association of Comparative Law (AIDC) blog draws its readers’ attention to “16 ottobre nasce la nuova Corte Suprema del Regno Unito”.

We had previously missed the interesting IntLawGrrls blog – a women’s blog on international law, policy, and practice which has posting on the UK Supreme Court and its first case.  We recommend this lively blog to everyone with an interest in international law.
We are interested to see that there is a Wikipedia page for “List of Supreme Court of the United Kingdom under Lord Phillips” – which now links to a commentary on the Re Sigma Finance Case although a commentary on R (L) v Commissioner of Police is still awaited.  Perhaps a dynamic reader would like to contribute something.
And finally, on the Court, the Canadian law blog, deals with the important question of the menu in the Supreme Court cafe, drawing attention to the lack of wine noting that the Lives of the Lord Chancellors reported that Lord Eldon drank very copiously of port “but he can not be considered as intemperate, for his liquor never disturbed his understanding, or impaired his health, or interfered with the discharge of any of his duties”.
And thank you to all those who have mentioned us on Twitter.  There is a search engine, powered by tweets, called Topsy, on which can be found all references to the blog on Twitter.
