Welcome, everybody, to the first newsletter from the Lady Hale Fan Club, established just now after the landmark case, Lady Hale v Those Populists Who Say It’s All Just a Plot to Stop Brexit (When It’s Actually the Establishment Looking to Subvert Democracy), which ruled unanimously in her favour.
Lady Hale has endorsed the fan club and will keep us informed of all her activities — what brooch she’ll be wearing when — and will also share her favourite recipes for calling out liars and anyone who attempts to hustle through a strategy without properly consulting parliament. Such recipes, we know, won’t be to everyone’s taste. Jacob Rees-Mogg, for instance, will likely make quite a face. Even though the sanctity of the British judiciary is in fact the very thing you’d imagine he’d most want? Sometimes nothing makes sense, I think we’ll all just have to agree.
