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…

    Should have got Barista of the year award for his performance in Leveson thus far

    That is all says:

    He looks like “Toadfish” from Nieghbours.

    Well done boss!

    Well it's a thought says:

    What next for him a tour of the county courts along with the whitewash tankers.

    Shambling says:

    Yes well done old chap.

    Oh just remind me please – who is paying his fee bill?

      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.

    I wonder how much he is paid for the time at Leveson.

    Glyn H says:

    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?

    He’s an ugly little git isn’t he?

    Chris Huhne says:

    Perhaps I will hire him to be part of my defence team.

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    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.

      Are your seriously suggesting that a member of the bar would vote if there was a conflict of interest?

    He really does look like Michael Bentine.

      Not the best shot I agree. Imagine him in a powdered wig…. god no! Forget it.

    What, no award for Cherie Booth ?

      Rat's arse says:

      An award for what Lord S.C.? Being the wife of a w.a.r criminal, or having the ugliest gob ever seen. She is ugly from the inside out.

    Lord Timon says:

    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.


  20. 32
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    The prize is awarded by the liebour along with a pair of panties from that very special friend whom he works with

    Ichabod says:

    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”.

    The Brown Mong can fuck off and do one. Pay me damages. says:

    Hoons have nothing to celebrate. The Leveson Enquiry is a farce and nothing dignified about the Left trying to control the media. Farce!

    He looks like the sort of chap with a strange hobby involving

    It is time to restate the bleeding obvious, Most lawyers are lefties [the Liebour Party is littered with foul beasts] They invent the laws to be able to screw the voters for every last penny……. The costs of the Leveson enquiry has been gestimated as being in excess of over £5m.. so guess who is laughing all the way to the bank……..

    Colonel Madd says:

    Jays fee will come in at slightly above £500K……..used to be called half a million back in the day

    He’s a mundane third rate tosser with all the cross examination skills of a Police Community Support Officer.

    Not one of the “witnesses” was ever put in a tough spot ,most lied egregiously.Blair even went home with his anus having been given a nice spit shine by m’learned friends tongue

    A second year law student could have done a better job

    What a f*****g country

        Both in desperate financial trouble already with tiny circulations and falling. The G******* would be bust years ago if it were not for BBC (taxpayer ads.) and the Scott Trust and AutoTrader…stop buying the car mag. it practically finances the appalling G******.
