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.
