'Nigella Fan' Cam Slam

Dave is in trouble over his interview in this week’s Speccie. The defence in the Saatchi PAs’ trial has tried to halt the whole case, making a submission to the judge which cannot be reported in full but is based on the PM declaring himself to be on #TeamNigella. The judge says:

“The reason for the delay this morning is because I have been looking through a large number of press reports. They centre on comments that the Prime Minister has made about a prosecution witness, Ms Lawson.

It is always of regret when a person in public office comments on a person involved in a trial trial when it is in progress.

I am sorry that so much court time has been taken up on this subject. I am sorry that almost a whole morning has been wasted. The defence feel aggrieved and they have reason to feel aggrieved.”

No, Prime Minister.
