VOTE YES DITCH THE DEAL WE CAN DO BETTER NEGOTIATION WISE WITH THE MOJ DON’T LET FAILING GRAYLING DICTATE TERMS WE ARETHE SHITSTORM ADVOCATES!!!
The CBA has fabulous Leaders in Nigel Lithman QC and Tony Cross QC but they have erred in this instance
Hands up who remembers the Rally for Legal Aid at Lincolns Inn. I a #eliteNonLawyer was there part of the action, in spirit at the Bar (Criminal) and we were ONE BODY. Our Rally gathered from the four corners of the CBA Earth was a melange of all the Circuits, all the Barristers from Juniors to QCs and one little Non Lawyer in between.
Who can forget Mike Turner QC’s epic speech on how we are being financially duped by the MOJ. These are ideaologically driven cuts when we have the args to keep on budget AND have a fully functioning Legal Aid system as well.
What about Peter Joyce QC’s amazing speech basically telling us how fucking weak we have been? how spineless, how lacking in the intelligence we need to collectively fight back which is what we are needing to do.#shitstormadvocacy #accessyourinnerJohncook

Was it not a joy to hear Tony Cross in his thick Northern accent tell us in no uncertain terms that The CBA was represented by ALL THE CIRCUITS ‘
Last but not least Mark George QC kicks arse with a rousing speech that is a turning point for the Rally.
I am proud to have sat in the same row as him opposite the picture of a LAWYER LORD CHANCELLOR complete with long wig and gown whilst my ipad was recharging on the many plug sockets in the Great Hall.
WE NEED TO REVISIT THOSE DAYS#ONE BAR ONE UNITY. #TAKEBACKOURUNITYWITHCROWNCOURTANDMAGSCOURTSTRIKES
WE ALSO NEED TO BELIEVE IN OUR NEGOTIATION SKILLS. DO WE WANT FAILING GRAYLING DICTATING TERMS OF OUR DEALS.WE CAN DO BETTER
THIS IS OUR TRUE VOICE. THE YES/NO DEBATE IS JUST US ARGUING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE SPECTRUM. DON’T LET US LET OUR SKILLED ARGUMENTS MAKE US FORGET OUR TRUE UNIFIED ROOTS.
Watch at leisure and reminisce!!!!!!!!
We have forgotton our roots. We have abandoned our true Unity in the face of the Grayling blinder. John Cooper QC rightly says Grayling has done a blinder despicable fellow that he is. We have let our selves be put over a barrel. For fuck sakes WE ARE ADVOCATES.#TheBarandSolsTogether #TheBarandSolsTogetherwiththeirbelovedpreciousNonLawyers
Lets ask questions about VOTING YES what does it mean for our mortgages etc Lawyers Non Lawyers The Bar and Sols Together
Simon Myerson is right to ask uncomfortable questions of us. What does the YES VOTE MEAN IN REAL LIFE in terms of mortgage payments etc. We need to answer his questions.
PUT QUESTIONS HERE LETS ANSWER THEM AND VOTE YES
What is Graylings purpose in forcing a NO answer
Well he wants to stifle dissent, cause division, and stop The Bar Criminal Civil Commercial etc becoming an UNASSAILABLE COUNTER FORCE TO STOP THE GOVERNMENT STEAM ROLLERING IT’S POLICIES ONTO AN ELECTORATE WHO WILL WISH THEY SUPPORTED THE SAVE UK JUSTICE CAMPAIGN ON TWITTER ETC.
I hope I have made my Case, I may of course edit this document.
My grateful thanks to John Cooper QC for presenting the args I need to advance the VOTE YES Case and for being such a leading Voice in the Campaign. Strength to your elbow mate
