Aye, but not your usual type of lawyer.
Was on the prosecution side as I said, but then something happened, I’m not sure what exactly, but he switched sides - became exclusively a defence lawyer.
On the Brexit front, he was keen to explore a ‘Norway style’ deal - wouldn’t shock me if at the end of this year something akin to what he was talking about does actually emerge.
Anyways, Michael Foot, Neil Kinnock, Ed Miliband - UK voters have rejected them as too left wing - take away the Blair years and that is what the Labour party have to show - zilch (except for ol’ frown Brown in for a while unelected)
But will Labour learn? - not while the Unions/Momentum etc rule the roost
