Current High Court

Some people say that the current High Court is one of the most conservative in the history of federation. Which is strange given that four of the current High Court Justices were appointed by ALP governments and only three by LNP governments. This could mean the appointing governments had no eye to the “politics” of the appointees, the appointees do not let their personal politics play any part in their decision making, or politics in Australia has moved a long way to the conservative side.
