Year 2, week 6: geriatrigation

Actually, I’ve decided in the last couple of days that I’m going to help TheMoldies whether they have a case or not.  Don’t start getting any ideas that this means I’m going all soft or anything.  I mean, hey, win or lose, the David and Goliath type story can only bring me the sort of […]

Year 2, week 6: SoulDestroying

Thinking about TheMoldies today (for which, see yesterday’s post).  Kind of reminds me of a Roger McGough poem entitled ‘Let me die a young man’s death’ in which he says, ‘when I’m 91 with silver hair and sitting in a barber’s chair may rival gangsters with hamfisted tommyguns burst in and give me a short […]

Year 2, week 6: TheMoldies

TheMadOldies (perhaps TheMoldies) arrived into chambers today.  Not sure what the collective noun would be in this case.  A cackle?  Whatever it is, they certainly lived up to all expectations.  Last year there was a rock band called The Zimmers with an average age well above even the Rolling Stones but they had nothing on […]

Year 2, week 6: wotsit

As for what I’ve been up to day, here’s a small portion of my court hearing this morning. “That case on causation.  Wotsit’s name?”  my opponent said in the middle of the hearing. “Oh, wotsit called?”  said the judge. “Wotsit’s name?” my opponent again, scratching his head. “Oh.  Wotsit…wotsit…wotsit?”  the judge went on. “Wotsit?” I […]

Year 2, week 6: on a donkey

BusyBody was spotted in chambers today by TheVamp.  I asked how heavily pregnant she now was.  TheVamp replied with, ‘Well, let’s put it like this.  She’s on a donkey and heading out of Nazareth.’ Apparently she’s due later this month.  Although she refuses to say whether the father is FanciesHimself the junior clerk or OldSmoothie, […]

Year 2, week 9: SellOff

Golly.  I mentioned selling off the Inner Temple to HeadofChambers today and you could almost see his jaw hit the ground.  ‘But.  But.’  You could see his mind racing. ‘You can’t.  No good would come of it at all.  No good.’ Except a huge amount of cash, that is, I replied.  Then his legal mind […]

Year 2, week 5: SchoolForScoundrels

Since I started writing this blog I’ve had a whole bunch of enquiries from people who have started pupillage this October asking if I will become their personal pupillage coach.  Well, everything has a price and mine is a retainer of £10,000 for the year on a no-win no-fee basis.  In other words, if that […]

Year 2, week 5: BackHanders

‘As mad as fromage,’ was how ClichéClanger described BigMouth’s pensioner constituents who claim to be affected by wireless.  BigMouth wants ClichéClanger to represent them in an action against one particular telecoms company.  ClichéClanger is, to say the least, not keen.  However, it seems he’s got a backhanded deal whereby BigMouth has promised to recommend him […]
