We'll be rid of Kirby shortly, and already he's angling to top up his enormous pension with a UN gig.
Who else to fluff up his chances of a well paid sinecure than his old mate, David Marr.
Marr says this is in his fluff-piece:
Traditionally only chief justices are formally farewelled by the court. The rest are expected to disappear without fuss.
Exactly. Why don't you whisper that to Kirby, and tell him to bugger off into obscurity ane leave the rest of us in peace. And at age 70, surely it's time the silly old fart released himself from the government tit once and for all. If he takes a job with the UN, he should give up his pension.
