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”. It tells Cameron to launch a Royal Commission and free vote in parliament. Who is behind this drivel?

Philip Kolvin QC, a silk who judging by his Chambers profile seems to do a lot of EU-law related work. His expertise is in licencing rather than constitutional law – specifically acting for “leading lap dance operators in London and the provinces” as well as “the sex shop industry in Soho”. Kolvin appears to have spammed his round-robin letter out across the whole Bar. Something tells Guido he won’t have a happy ending.

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
