I read in a law book that it is possible to remove a judge from the Bench via the Houses of Parliament if

a) ill

b) unsound mind

c) inability to reason

but I cannot remember which book.

 

This would be useful to know in relation to Article 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998 where a judge has deliberately abused civil right to a fair hearing where it is in fact a perversion of the course of justice.

Why is this idea important?

Access to Justice should be inclusive of substantive justice.  Only a judge can abuse your human rights to a fair trial and it should not be a civil matter on appeal as article 6.  The issue is not a miscarriage of justice because the judge is deliberate in his actions / mens rea and actus reus.
