A tale from the Court... Was he being serious by raistlin

Not from my Court this, but recounted by a colleague during lunch.

As some of you may be aware, baby barristers are sent to cut their teeth on cases in the Magistrates' Court. And don't some of them need a dose of reality.

There was a defence barrister in front of my colleague this morning who makes Harry Potter look positively ancient.

During a lull in the proceedings, people chat about all manner of things when there are no members of the public, or even worse, press, in the Court and apparently the discussion turned towards the recent referendum concerning the UK exit, or otherwise, from the European Union.

One of the comments from the boy blunder was:- "Clearly, the result of that ridiculous referendum is a classic example of why the working class should not have the vote, which should be reserved, in such circumstances, to those of us with the intellect to understand the issues..."

It seems that he was being serious. Deadly serious.

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

Quite right, the hoi poloi should keep quiet - no doubt he explained the issues in great detail. Serious;y though,with that attitude what is his attitude towards working class people he is either defending or prosecuting.

"Don't think of them as problems, think of them as opportunities."
"OK, I think I've hit an insurmountable opportunity!"
