Huw Merriman (being a junior barrister) is well accustomed to wearing a wig. Shame upon him then, if he mocks another for so doing.
For my part, albeit still a junior (not a QC) but nevertheless much more senior than him, I still wear mine with pride – and satisfaction that it covers my bald patch.
Lest it be said that I was ‘privileged’, I was a grammar school kid from a poor background who never had the pleasure of attending university – unlike him.
For today’s students, the message really is quite simple: if you want to succeed and try hard enough – you will!
