To Dis the Robe or Keep it On?

On 16 January 2010, the Chief Justice in his speech at the Opening of the Legal Year 2010 has called for opinions on whether we should retain our robes, bands, and whatsits as our legal attire. I managed to find the email I posted to the Rostrum, an email based forum I moderate along with Mr. K. Shanumga, where I argued for its continuation from the perspective of an appreciation of history.
