Urgh. Pathetic Daily Mail
drivel about them "throwing away" 300 years of tradition. Only 18 months ago they were crying and bawling about "ridiculous looking" judges' robes costing the taxpayer £500,000 a time. Wigs have been in and out of fashion for hundreds of years; in ten years time a new wig design will be unveiled. I await the headline on the Mail's front page in May 2018 that will say something along the lines of "Absurd Wigs to be Introduced into Civil Courts at a Cost of £100bn!!!"
Back on topic, they look nothing remotely like Star Trek costumes. Apart from the red. They should have based the look on the DOOP skirts from Futurama; Lord Hoffman in white go-go boots. Phwoar.
