“Twitter joke” appeal: interview with Paul Chambers’s legal team

Following today’s judgment in the “Twitter joke” trial appeal, I spoke to Paul Chambers’s legal team: David Allen Green, Sarah Przybylska and John Cooper QC. I ask about their reactions to the case, and how clear they think the ruling is. It’s worth listening to for David Allen Green’s view on the decision of the DPP personally to pursue the prosecution through the appeal process – which he calls “disgraceful”.
