Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fortunately, the appointment of judges is well defined. Judge Reed was already the deputy of Lady Hale, the currentPresident. Per Wiki:
Judges of the Supreme Court are appointed by The Queen by the issue of letters patent,[7] on the advice of the Prime Minister, to whom a name is recommended by a special selection commission. The Prime Minister is required by the Constitutional Reform Act to recommend this name to the Queen and not permitted to nominate anyone else.
