Boris Johnson tried to make political capital following the recent terror attack, on London Bridge.
In the aftermath, when any Tory politician was out shouting lies from the roof tops one voice of sanity prevailed. The Secret Barrister (@barristerSecret).
He, painstakingly, laid out the law in relation to Khan and his release. This was in the form of 16 linked tweets. As you would expect, he explained the law, and this complicated case in a way that even a bamboozled Chimp could follow it.
It turns out one did. Boris Johnson cut and pasted the work into his twitter timeline as his own. This was Pinocchio being his lying, skulldugerous self.
However, The Secret Barrister is made of sterner stuff. He took Pinocchio Johnson to task, publicly and to great effect. In so doing he used the phrase;
This is weapons grade shithousery
and this is about out Prime Minister. No wonder so many think him unfit for office.
What seemed to, rightly, annoy Secret was that he wrote the piece to rebut the lies being spread by Pinocchio and Pritti Patel.
We were so offended by Pinocchio, and in awe of Secret that we wanted to do something to help. So, we put the phrase on a Tee Shirt. If you click on the image, the link will take you to the shop, choose your colour, leave your address and hand over the spondoolicks and we will post it out.
Each Tee Shirt sold will earn a donation for The Secret Barrister’s nominated charity, the Free Representation Unit (@FreeRepUnit). The FRU has been providing representation in social security and employment tribunals since 1972 for those not eligible for legal aid and who cannot afford lawyers.
Even if you don’t buy a Tee Shirt, please consider following the link and making a donation.
Whilst you are at it, why not buy The Secret Barrister’s Best-Selling Book; Stories of The Law and How It’s Broken. Chatty did, and, excuse the language but it scared the shit out of him.
