Have you ever wondered how Boris Johnson and other members of the Conservative party would act if they were lawyers?

Well, thanks to Joanna Hardy, a junior criminal barrister at Red Lion Chambers, you don’t have to. In a hilarious Twitter thread posted this morning, which has since received over 1,000 likes and nearly 300 retweets, Hardy imagines the Prime Minister and other top Tory MPs as fictional criminal barristers.

Filled with plenty of QC quips and lawyer in-jokes, here is a round-up of Hardy’s thread.
