The Daily Mail’s been digging for dirt on the Boris Johnson judges and it’s shocking stuff
After a Scottish court ruled that Boris Johnson’s suspension of Parliament was unlawful, it was inevitable that the Daily Mail would go after the judges responsible.
And the dirt they uncovered went viral, although not for the reasons the Mail would have presumably been hoping.
Daily Mail has found some proper dirt on the Scottish judges who ruled prorogation to be unlawful. It turns out one has a "passion for France." Another is a "jazz lover" who predicted Brexit would be "an onerous task." Scandalous stuff pic.twitter.com/LnKfbgJKRo

And here are just a few of the things people were saying about it.
An incredible scoop by the Daily Mail who have run an exposé on the Scottish judges who have ruled Boris Johnson’s prorogation to be unlawful.
One judge has a "passion for France." Another judge has been exposed as a "jazz lover".
This is outrageous. What a scandal. pic.twitter.com/CGAzvRwmUn

Imagine having a case so weak you have to attack the judiciary on the grounds that they sometimes enjoy jazz https://t.co/O9mpJKErvC

Listen, if someone making legal rulings of this importance is listening to jazz in his spare time, then morally that's between him and his conscience. But the people have a right to know.

That faint noise you can hear is the bottom of a mouldy barrel being scraped in the DM office. https://t.co/jCCyJlUHkq

This is damning stuff. I don’t see how the Brexiteers who stand to make a fortune from no deal Brexit can hope to expect them to be impartial

In 35 years on this planet I have never seen any kind of Austrian medium attempt to damage the reputation of a judge. In my naivité I thought that would be normal in a lawful democracy. https://t.co/Ub8ZGBg9GR
