Supreme Predictions

This morning the Supreme Court delivered a ruling that the UK Government acted unlawfully in its recent prorogation of Parliament and so Parliament is consequently no long prorogued. After its decision in this case that the Prime Minister prorogued Parliament with the intent of stopping it carrying out its duties, I look forward to a similarly shocking ruling in the vexed matter of whether or not ursine mammals defecate in forested areas.

I have noticed over the years that everyone on Twitter is – or at least thinks they are – a legal expert, so not to be outdone I last night posted my own prediction of the Supreme Court ruling:

My legal acumen having been established beyond any reasonable doubt, I mention for the record that I posted this tweet at the same time:

This is the correct way to make predictions in the age of social media.

Diana Ross is 75.

  1. I understand your need to assert your very real expertise on these matters, but nonetheless I can’t help feeling that your legal declarations are on a very different footing from (say) your observations on cosmology or the latest on Maynooth Library Cat. Perhaps you could use a different font, depending on the level of authority you are claiming?

  2. “Diana Ross is 75.”

    Maybe I’m missing something (because I am not on Twitter?), but she will be sevent-five-and-one-half the day after tomorrow.

    But lots of people are 75. Why is she worth a mention? Has one of her songs been adapted as an anthem by anti-Brexit campaigners? Which one? “Where Did Our Love Go”, “Stop! In the Name of Love”, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On”, “Someday We’ll Be Together”?

    Of course, the Brexit anthem has to be R.E.M.s “It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine”. 😐
