The Judges
by Paul Osler

A true story accusing three of Her Majesty’s Judges of dishonesty.
A book which raises important questions about the power, integrity and accountability of our judges.


The judges of England and Wales – obliged by their oath of office to apply the law without fear or favour; the Magna Carta – a promise that no one will be denied justice; the rule of law – a promise that public officials, including judges, are bound by the law; Parliament – the sovereign law-maker to which the judges are subservient: is all this true or simply a pleasant fiction?

Who will stand up to the judges? Who dares accuse them? In 2015 and 2016, the author, a retired successful solicitor, conducted a court case for a friend, which led to him accusing three judges, including one of the High Court, of having deliberately acted to defeat justice.

This book tells the story of that case and those unprecedented accusations, and it sets out and explains the relevant law and evidence. Also implicated is Paul Kernaghan, a former Chief Constable of Hampshire, now the Judicial Appointments and Conduct Ombudsman and a senior civil servant, who the author accuses of failing in his duty to supervise a complaint of serious misconduct made against a High Court judge.

Are the judges worthy of the respect afforded them, or, at times, do they ignore their duty, the law, Parliament and our rights?
