  1. Now, will that peerage follow? I suspect that it will though I have not changed my own views about these automatic titles etc! After all, he can't really be allowed to be the odd one out. It would seem a bit unfair.

    If he gets a peerage then I would suspect that all subsequent Justices will also be ennobled. It will be interesting to see whether the government breaks the traditional mould or not.
