Keir Starmer is a lawyer. He became a barrister in 1987.
The Red Knight thinks he has a case against Boris Johnson. He has brought forward a case that the Crown Prosecution Service would throw out,
He is putting the case for the prosecution to the Jury also called the electorate on what someone is alledged to have siad. What has he got?
He has one main witness who is considered dubious. The defence barrister would have an easy ride against such a witness.
Then the argument for the prosecution goes to two unnamed witnesses who won’t take the stand. So the case for the prosecution is that so called journalists are saying what amounts to “Somebody told me down te pub.”
What kind of jury would come to a guilty verdict?
