Brooks Newmark Still Trying To Hide Shame

brooks-newmark-carter-ruck

This morning Guido got a notice from Google at the behest of Carter Ruck telling us they were going to take the links to Newmark’s selfies out of the Google search index. This is counter-productive because it just gives Guido an excuse to put the images up again and back into the Google search index.

Brooks Newmark

What is the point after being splashed all over the Sunday front pages week after week? If you want to see the futility of Newmark wasting his money on Carter-Ruck look at this list of sites hosting the images. Brooks, we know you read Guido, please Google “Streisand effect” and save your money.

Legal Luvvies Forget Achievement of Notable Female Tory Barrister

thatcher-missing

A Law Society backed initiative called ‘The First 100 Years’  has published a timeline celebrating the achievements of women connected to the law profession. Certainly a noble project, or so you might think. Former solicitor Nicola Sturgeon is a deserved inclusion, Baroness Scotland makes the cut and so does Shami Chakrabarti, though for some reason they neglect to mention her more recent work. Curiously there is a gap between 1977 and 1980. The lefty legal establishment must have forgotten the achievement of a certain female Tory barrister in that time…

Mad Professor Wants to Prosecute Vote Leave Boss

mad-professor

Professor bob Watt, an expert in electoral law from the University of Buckingham, has made a complaint about “undue influence” to the Director of Public Prosecutions. Under electoral law “undue influence” includes the use of “a fraudulent device or contrivance” to “impede or prevent or intend to impede or prevent the free exercise of the franchise”. The eccentric Professor “bob” – he insists on the lower case ‘b’ –  claims there were “instances where the leave campaigns continued to make assertions of fact that were knowingly misleading”. In particular the famous £350 million claim.

He says his “primary aim in seeking prosecution is to try to restore some integrity to our democratic processes.” Good luck with that…

This is beyond quixotic, Vote Leave CEO Matthew Ellliott will simply explain that £350 million is equivalent to the gross weekly payment, not the net weekly payment once the rebate and other transfers are taken into account. Therefore the headline figure is true before those qualifications. Any reasonable person examining the claim – which was widely contested – would understand how the figure was arrived at. In the debates Michael Gove and others conceded that the net figure was less.

Professor “bob” has had success before – he was one of the people behind the election petition against Lutfur Rahman cronies. In that case there was out and out political corruption. Are we seriously expecting judges to rule on the phrasing of political slogans?

UPDATE:

High Court Rules Parliament WILL Vote on Article 50

rcj

No news as yet as to if the government will appeal. Ironically this presents a big problem for Corbyn. Many on his backbenches will vote against triggering Article 50. Against the will of the voters…

UPDATE: Read the full ruling here.

UPDATE II: Government statement:

“The Government is disappointed by the Court’s judgment. The country voted to leave the European Union in a referendum approved by Act of Parliament. And the Government is determined to respect the result of the referendum. We will appeal this judgment.”

Remain Oaf’s Pompous Brexit Whinge

screen-shot-2016-10-04-at-16-11-18

On Sunday Theresa May warned that city law firms seeking to block Brexit through the courts are “not standing up for democracy, they’re trying to subvert it”. The original letter sent around Europhile lawyers was pompous enough. But check this out from Edwin Coe LLP, who are representing hairdresser Deir Santos in his sad attempt to JR Article 50:

“Mr Santos is asserting his constitutional right to challenge the authority of the Government to exercise a right to serve the Article 50 notice. To accuse him and others of being anti-democratic is both wrong and inflammatory. It will merely serve to increase the heat in this debate which turns on simple legal and constitutional principles. The Government should not criticise the challenge but welcome it because it will give certainty to the Article 50 process. This is about the rule of law.  That issue should stand above all others. It is a principle that the Government should uphold and not damn.” 

Santos calls himself “an ordinary guy”. Get over yourself.

Brooks Newmark Gets Carter Ruck to Delete His Sext Pics from Internet

brooks

Brooks Newmark has instructed Carter-Ruck to remove all his sext pictures from the internet. Letters have gone out from the solicitors to newspapers, who have complied with his demand because they are his copyrighted images. He used to like sharing his photos…

Now if you search the stories about him you will see that the original pictures he sent have indeed been removed. Obviously since he sent photos voluntarily to our “Sophie” this will be amusing to argue about in Court. A senior government Special Adviser has been known to share with colleagues some of the funnier – so far unpublished – pics of Brooks in his pyjamas. “‘Ere, do you want to see some dirty pictures?”

Neil Coyle Threatens to Sue Corbyn Personally

Neil Coyle is “fuming” after Corbyn’s campaign included his name in a list of Labour MPs who have, they claim, “abused” the leadership. Coyle has gone on TV to threaten to sue Corbyn personally for defamation. He’ll look a bit silly if he doesn’t go through with it now. What “abuse” did Coyle allegedly commit? Well he called John McDonnell an “utter disgrace” and accused him of wasting police time. Which is probably fair comment…

Crowdfunded Juncker Legal Challenge

juncker

Jean-Claude Juncker is in hot water after issuing a potentially unlawful decree to EU commissioners ordering them not to negotiate with Britain. Juncker told them he was using a “Presidential order” to block talks, but embarrassingly the Commission was later forced to admit no such thing exists. This is the phrase that is giving Juncker a legal problem:

“I have forbidden Commissioners from holding discussions with representatives from the British Government — by Presidential order… I have told all the Directors-General that there cannot be any prior discussions with British representatives.”

He is now being taken to court for the “misleading, unlawful and harmful” ban on negotiations. The legal challenge is being crowdfunded here

Vaz Charity Retains Carter Ruck

Burgon Impressing Shadow Cabinet Colleagues in New Brief

There was much snobbery from Labour moderates when Richard Burgon landed the role of Shadow Justice Secretary, but he has quickly forged a reputation as one of the Shadow Cabinet’s top thinkers. Each week, members of the Shadow Cabinet “legislation committee” meet to discuss policy.[…] Read the rest

1,000 Bad Loser Barristers Sign ‘Block Brexit’ Letter

KOLVIN

Last week Guido reported that lap dancing lawyer Philip Kolvin QC is coordinating a letter from barristers to the Prime Minister trying to block Brexit. This morning City AM reveals over 1,000 bad loser barristers are putting their names to the hilariously pompous letter, which includes such cringeworthy pearls of £500-an-hour wisdom as:

Our legal opinion is that the referendum is advisory.

Lap Dancing Lawyer Tries to Block Brexit

KOLVIN

It’s not just Mishcon who want to block Brexit through the courts – now city silks are writing to the PM to demand Article 50 is not triggered. The pompous letter complains the “referendum did not set a threshold necessary to leave the EU”, whinges “the result of the referendum result was influenced by misrepresentations of fact” and moans “the outcome of the exit process will affect a generation of people who were not old enough to vote”.[…] Read the rest
