Michael Fordham QC: the avocado of justice

Michael Fordham

Michael Fordham QC was I think the star of today’s “Saving Justice” demo outside the Ministry of Justice. His speech was both angry and funny – he called the Ministry of Justice “wankers”. And his avocado of justice, odd as it sounds, went down a storm with his audience.

  1. This was probably the best of the afternoon – a perfectly pitched piece of rhetoric underpinned with a fiery passion. Just excellent.

  2. This is the guy who obsesses over the colour of folders used for his papers in court.

  3. Poor avocado! A witty, lively and humorous presentation on a matter of serious concern. Well done Mr Fordham!

  4. Avocado: a useful analogy. Ministers are unlikely to be satisfied even if they get this package through.

  5. He is a traitor to the majority of the british people who dont want more “asylum seekers”/”benefit/economic migrants”
