Legal Cheek is watching you…

Poorly disguised Twitter boast of the week

@John_Cooper_QC

“Got tickets to see ‘Saved’ at the Lyric by Edward Bond, who directed my play at The Royal Court. Great man.” Link

Twitter tantrum of the week

@CharonQC, upon hearing that @thelawyermag has launched a “Blogpost of The Week”:

“Is there anything more self important than a “Blogpost of The Week”? Law blogging is not a competition… I hope…. I despair. Rebel!” Link

It goes on…

“I find it distasteful and insulting to the many good law bloggers… ridiculous! Pretentious.” Link

…then invokes Winston Churchill…

“Churchill “This is nonsense up with which I shall not put”.. “Blog Posts of The Week” is nonsense… law bloggers do not need PRIZES!” Link

…and keeps going…but we’ll spare you the rest

Broke barrister of the week

@Baby_Barrister

“Got very annoyed 2day when a cafe in Bloomsbury asked me if I wanted 2 leave a gratuity after already having been charged a service charge.” Link

Casually damning tweet of the week

@JoshuaRozenberg

 “Anyone know how to stop Legalease sending me Legal Business mag? Change-of-address notifications and sending copies back makes no difference.” Link

 To which hurt Legal Business journo @HodgesJeremy replied:

 “You could just ask I suppose.” Link

Twitter newbie of the week

College of Law mad professor @ProfNigelSavage

A shy, retiring soul, Savage’s bio reads: “Chief Exec of the College of Law. I’ve had more impact on legal education than you’ve had hot dinners. Lives by the sword but will never die.”
