A no-effort spared investigation can reveal that the former Justice Minister, Chris Grayling, is The Secret Barrister.
The Secret Barrister
Since the SB took to Twitter, in May 2015, Chris Grayling featured regularly as a target for Secret’s legendary wit, point by point repudiation, withering sarcasm and evident disdain. Many a breakfast has been disturbed by the reading out of Secret’s latest deconstruction of Grayling’s devastation of the legal system.
The growth in the popularity of the @BarristerSecret account suggests public approval for this approach.
However, sources close to the former minister have revealed that it was all a cunning ruse, designed to throw would-be investigators off the scent.A sauce
When Mr Grayling became Justice Minister, he was so appalled at the establishment’s mismanagement of the legal system that drastic action was required. Like Jim Hacker before him, his daily battles with civil servants proved to be futile. In desperation, he created The Secret Barrister as an outlet for his anger and frustration.
“He thought if people knew what was going on in the Justice System, an informed and engaged public would demand big changes. How wrong he was.”A Government shill
The Honourable Mr Grayling hatched a cunning plan, in order to force systemic reform. Whenever a ministerial decision was required, he took the wrong one. The aim was to break the system, each ‘cock-up’ would be amusingly highlighted by his Twitter alter ego, and the resulting furore would force the government to fix the problem. Sadly, this cunning plan failed.
One consolation for this selfless politician is that the best-selling book; Stories of The Law and How It’s Broken, has generated such stupendous wealth that Secret is now able to retire from the law, and concentrate on a burgeoning gavel supply business, “Whose Knocking Ltd”.
