If you are unaware of the Indycamp story, it involves some litigants in Scotland who are asserting that Jesus is the rightful King of Scotland and thus they can’t legally be evicted from the grounds of the Scottish Parliament (which obviously has no jurisdiction)
There’s a great Lowering the Bar piece here
about the Court’s refusal to allow the Indy Camp litigants to call Queen Elizabeth to be cross-examined. There’s also the lovely detail that they contacted 144 lawyers asking them to take the case and all of them ‘said they were busy’
Anyway, the headline of this piece is something that Lord Turnbull, hearing this case today actually said to the litigants in person during today’s hearing. There’s also a lovely exchange where Lord Turnbull says “This witness statement is signed with the single word ‘Christ’ – can we talk about that for a moment?’
I strongly urge you to follow @BBCPhilipSim on Twitter, who is live tweeting from this hearing, no doubt with his fist stuffed in his mouth to stop himself crying with laughter. It is a CRACKER. Right now. An antidote to all of the other bad news over the last few days.
