Brick Court Chambers to show England’s World Cup clash against Croatia during posh summer soirée

Football’s coming home… to a major gallery near you

A certain World Cup semi-final between England and Croatia in Moscow has obviously come as something of a surprise to many.

And perhaps a certain pang of pity might be felt for various chambers and law firms who organised events for 11 July safe in the knowledge that England was not likely to go beyond the group or even quarter-final round.

Elite commercial set Brick Court Chambers has risen to the challenge. Having sent out invitations some months ago for its annual party at Tate Britain this evening, it sent out a more recent reminder that “the members of chambers look forward to welcoming you to their annual party, which will include a viewing of the All Too Human: Bacon, Freud and a Century of Painting Life Exhibition AND a screening of the World Cup semi-final match between Croatia and England.”

It seems the chambers couldn’t have chosen a more aptly-named exhibition for the party and the fixture — All Too Human — should the England players not make it to the final… or if they do…

They must be bricking it now that all that extravagantly expensive EU litigation before the European courts will dry up as we exit the EU

Tuck in

If we actually get rid of all that law and litigation (and that’s a big if), there will be at least five bonanza years while everybody tries to work out what replaces it.

Brick Court will be tucking in for years to come.

The British fans are absolutely disgraceful abroad and should not be allowed to travel.

How do people in 2018 still confuse the terms British and English? Americans seem particularly culpable (a phrase you could apply to almost anything).

What does this even mean?

Agreed, but at least this Rolls Royce journalist does not demand Peter Smith J’s resignation every time she appears on here 😁
