Interesting Fact # 563 – Secure Jobs

Being a judge in the UK, must be the most secure job there is. In the UK only two judges have been fired since the Act of Settlement in 1701, in the settlement only the Lord Chancellor had the power to sack them.

(The first dismissal was in in 1830, for stealing court funds. The second was in 1983, for smuggling whiskey and cigarettes into Britain on a private yacht. Now that’s more like it: cigarettes and whiskey and wild, wild women, they’ll drive you crazy, they’ll drive you insane.)
