Even Dara Ó Briain was loving it


A Cambridge-educated barrister has provided lawyers with some light relief from the constitutional law intricacies of the Brexit legal challenge, in the form of some hilarious tweets.

The legal commentariat was out in force yesterday livetweeting the Miller judicial review case, which kicked off in the Supreme Court at 11am. Contract and commercial law advocate Rupert Myers, however, offered tweeters something a little bit different…

Then there were these gems.

But the fun didn’t stop there. Here’s some more greatness courtesy of the East Anglian Chambers barrister.

As readers are probably aware, Myers’ tweets are satirical and not to be taken seriously — but that didn’t stop the likes, retweets and replies rolling in. Even Irish comic Dara Ó Briain, of Mock the Week fame, shared his appreciation.

The hearing continues today, with the claimants scheduled to give oral submissions this afternoon. And judging by Myers’ Twitter timeline this morning, expect more comical Supreme Court commentary.
