1KBW silk plonks the old horsehair on baby’s head in craven bid to win cute points from Twitterati


Aren’t baby pics meant to be restricted to that social media platform renowned as the depository of middle aged, middle class cyber bric-a-brac — Facebook?

Not according to James Turner QC, a family and crime law specialist at 1 King’s Bench Walk in the Temple.

The 39-year call silk took to The Twitter recently to pump out these shots of one of the youngest members of the Turner family gearing up for what appears to be a mini-pupillage.

And the thing about Twitter is that everyone in the ‘sphere feels entitled to comment.

In this case, Labour’s shadow attorney-general — Hull MP, Karl Turner — has piled in, tweeting at the silk: “Let’s hope the bar still exists when that little one decides career”. He then oddly signs off with a kiss.

Proving yet again there’s nowt so queer as t’internet.
