Like many convinced of their own righteousness, Maugham arrives at a seemingly hypocritical conclusion by fanatical sincerity. He's right to criticise the law on deprivation of nationality, which seems to me fundamentally unjust and illiberal. I couldn't put this book down, the story is detailed with good flow and kept my attention right to the end!

Maugham doesn’t mind if his political goals are achieved either by a written constitution (which judges cannot pass) or judges simply judicially inventing one. I think the public role of Maugham and co has changed post - 31st January 2020, even if their personal loathing of Brexit has not.He shares what drives his inspiration and purpose and offers an empowering, bold new vision for how the law can work better for all of us in the fight against injustice. Where the book is let down is perhaps by its pacing, the early chapters were a bit dry in offering a basic introduction to the English legal system (albeit it, as a lawyer myself, they may be of greater interest to someone new to the subject), and the books closes by focusing on the blatant corruption concerning PPE contracts in the early stages of the pandemic.

An upstream polluter can pay off someone with an economic interest downstream, but this exchange does nothing to preserve the river. The judges will decide whether the firm can be subject to private legal action over these discharges, in this case from the canal’s owner. The reviewer - not Rowling - claimed that Maugham was "a first-time author who should not be encouraged to re-offend ever again".Since it was based on a true story, I don't know how anyone could slam the author and claim her story lacked facts! A revealing, empowering vision of how the law can work better for all of us, from Jolyon Maugham KC, founder of Good Law Project. The word “Twitter” appears but once in the index of Jolyon Maugham’s memoir cum social action manifesto Bringing Down Goliath. The English legal system and the impression that the UK is a just land is worryingly in jeopardy from the onslaught of the rise of the right. We might see Maugham as an institutional agent of low liberalism, advancing this ideology in traditional institutions, albeit in a respectable garb.
