Year 2, week 8: you’re nicked

News on JudgeJewellery who I mentioned the other day.  Well, gossip, anyway.  Apparently a couple of days ago she was caught stealing cheap jewellery, as we all know is her wont.  A security guard first spotted her acting suspiciously and asked to look in her handbag.  She then got all high and mighty and ‘do […]

Year 2, week 8: legal expenses

More papers came in about the Moldies’ various cases today.  It seems that although they didn’t realise it, most of them actually have legal expenses insurance tucked away as an extra on their home insurance policies.  Very common that people simply don’t realise.  The great advantage is that you can avoid the hungry, greedy lawyers […]

Year 2, week 8: leverage

Now just because I was prepared to take the calculated risk in talking to RoundTheBlock, don’t think I was going to tell OldSmoothie about it.  Instead, I edited the footage down to the best stuff and still, in the disguise, posted it up on YouTube from an internet café in King’s Cross before sending an […]

Year 2, week 8: up and coming

Whatever the estate agents tell you about King’s Cross, the only thing that is up and coming in that hole of a grotsville is the clientele of the likes of RoundTheBlock.  Sad to say but the fact that the channel tunnel will now be dropping businessmen off there is hardly going to make the situation […]

Year 2, week 8: RoundTheBlock

Today we received the first tranche of evidence from RedTop’s lawyers which they say proves that BigMouth hired a certainly lady of the night who I shall call RoundTheBlock.  A couple of witness statements along with mention of a birthmark at a place on which the sun most certainly does not shine.  The only photo […]

Year 2, week 7: GolfDay

So BusyBody had a baby girl last night.  When the clerks rang the hospital this morning to check on their progress, one of the nurses let on that the baby had arrived exactly on time.  To the day.  Which of course got all the clerks flicking through their diaries given that FanciesHimself, the junior clerk, […]

Year 2, week 7: threats

‘I’ve worked it out BabyB.  I may not be able to prove anything but it suddenly dawned on me yesterday evening after a few drinks.  You were the one that set me up with Ginny.  It’s wasn’t ThirdSix at all.  You sneaky, backstabbing, conniving…’ At which point he launched into an impressive tirade of unprintable […]

Year 2, week 7: Pashmina

Went off to Hereford County Court today and found myself against another barrister from London who I shall call Pashmina.  She seemed quite animated to be so far from home (ie Kensington) and suggested we find somewhere nice for lunch.  What a liability she was.  Made the pair in Withnail and I look positively provincial. […]

Year 2, week 7: BlushTest

Had a chat with my instructing solicitor today.  I’ve probably done about ten cases for him in the last six months and I told him how much I appreciated the work.  He replied with, ‘Well, BabyB, it’s my pleasure.  Always happy to put bread on the table of the junior bar.’ Then without even skipping […]

Year 2, week 7: PigsMightFly

‘There’s a Gloucester Old Spot at ten thousand feet.’ That was the response of OldSmoothie today when UpTights strolled through the clerks room and almost purred in front of the assembled barristers and clerks, ‘Life, OldSmoothie, is indeed grand, wouldn’t you agree?  Cheques in the pigeon-hole and a case waiting to fight in court.  Couldn’t […]
