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…


  1. 1
    Nom Dom Nom says:

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

  2. 2
    That is all says:

    He looks like “Toadfish” from Nieghbours.

  3. 3
    Justine Milibrand says:

    Well Done Boss. Ed sends all his love too.

  4. 4
    Gordon Brown says:

    behave or I will resign

  5. 5
    Justine Thornton says:

    Well done boss!

  6. 6
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    Why? he is just another not very bright lawyer, with selected memory loss when it comes to certain witnesses. Like he forgot the miilitwats wife

  7. 7
    Well it's a thought says:

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

  8. 8
    Ed says:

    We are certainly all in this together

  9. 9
    Shambling says:

    Yes well done old chap.

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

  10. 10
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    Only if he is defending liebour party members

  11. 11
    The Angel of Dearth says:

    I’d keep quiet about watching Neighbours, if I were you.

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

    justine millitwat says:

    feel like a shag tonight

  14. 14
    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?

  15. 15
    Evie says:

    He’s an ugly little git isn’t he?

  16. 16
    I got my hopes up for a sec says:

  17. 17
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    look leave the poor,stunted ugly little whitewashing twat alone, he is a liebour party hero

  18. 18
    The Angel of Dearth says:

    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.

  19. 19
    The Angel of Dearth says:

    Arrgghh! Damn you! My hopes, raised and crushed, too.

  20. 20
    Evie says:

    Are all Barristers Labour members? It would explain a lot if they were.

  21. 21
    Loungelizard says:

    There they go again, the establishment obsessed with the Celeb Culture.

  22. 22
    Chris Huhne says:

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

  23. 23
    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.

  24. 24
    NeverRed says:

    He really does look like Michael Bentine.

  25. 25
    Lord Scalded Bollock says:

    What, no award for Cherie Booth ?

  26. 26
    Rat's arse says:

    He always sounded half-soaked to me at the pantomime known as the Leveson enquiry.

  27. 27
    Robert 'Master' J Thinks You're All Stupid says:

    Ha, ha, got the prize despite Mili’s wife is working for me!

  28. 28
    Blair Rich Project says:

    I am ready to serve again in my country’s hour of need.Just pick up the phone. All calls will be charged at £100,000 a second.

  29. 29
    Quaesitum ad fontem solos deducere verpos says:

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

  30. 30
    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.

  31. 31
    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.

  32. 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

  33. 33
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    conflict of intrest no, but a nice little rent boy yes

  34. 34
    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”.

  35. 35
    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!

  36. 36
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    window licker of the year

  37. 37
    Gonk says:

    He looks like the sort of chap with a strange hobby involving
    Unicorns at midnight.

    A Q.C.? Lt me think, in my day it was about £2K per day- now probably five times that. Gissa quid guv.?

    Cluster and Fuck litigation attorneys says:

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

    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

    Whippersnapper2 says:

    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******.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
