I’m afraid that I won’t be attending our Appeal hearing tomorrow – along with some of the legal team there are personal reasons connected to coronavirus for me being absent and the government advice has certainly become a lot clearer about travelling. I feel bad about this as I want to be there (who knows when I’ll get the opportunity to hear my case being argued by a QC in front of three appeal court judges again)? Also I feel as though I’m letting people down by not attending. But actually, I would be an observer and it is sensible given my personal circumstances not to attend.
But I hope to get updates from the court now and again.
And we do know who the three Appeal Court judges will be:
- The Rt Hon. Lord Justice Simon – and surely the fact that his given name is Peregrine is a good sign?
- The Rt Hon. Lord Justice Newey
- The Rt. Hon. Justice Sir Patrick Elias
