Mr Jay Scoops Top Barrister Prize

Congratulations are in order for Robert Jay QC. Brian’s inquisitor-in-chief has scooped the much-coveted Barrister of the Year prize at the Lawyer Awards for his efforts during the Leveson Inquiry. Guido still feels his finest moment was being the inspiration for the #PopLeveson trending topic on twitter. Expect to find Mr Jay celebrating at Sheekey’s tonight…

      Us. But this is where he deserves the money. He sits there listening to people waffle on and on during a completely pointless inquiry, and the only way he can relieve the boredom, the sheer unending tedium, is to mentally calculate is ever-increasing fee. That’s how I used to cope with extremely tedious but generally well-paid consultancy work.

      His clever bit – something I never managed – is to resist the urge to burst out laughing.

    Firstly we don’t know the result yet, it could be another Hutton, secondly he sounded surprisinglyly ineffective especially to Labour types, and thirdly how can a man be competent in a profession if he can’t be arsed to shave of a morning?

    Robert Jay QC is a part-time judge, according to his bio on the Inquiry website. It will be interesting indeed to see whether any lawyers involved with voting him this prize have app*eared before him on any sort of regular basis, and to see how these lawyers have fared, versus those who were not involved in the voting. Must avoid even the app*earance of impropriety, don’t you know.

    The Leveson charade is a joke. Not a funny one. IMHO, no one from this enquiry looks good. Especially those who have used it as a platform to spout their hypocrisy while trousering money and those who use it to score cheap political points. Disgraceful.

    Barrister of the Year awards !!! Dont they realise how stupid this sounds . Can we have an Accountant of the Year; or an Office Cleaner of the Year…or well I could go on. Even the Spectator political awards seem incestuous and plain dumb and oleaginous. On occasions like this it is always advisable to remember the wise words of the American composer Charles Ives, when rejecting a Pulitzer; ” prizes are for children. i’m all grown up”.

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
