Year 2, week 14: making plans

Well, after the press we received over the weekend we’re now more than in business.  Geriatrigation.com is already a going concern with over a hundred thousand visits and a thousand people signed up and passed over to ClicheClanger.  At this stage he has to do nothing except send out letters of acknowledgement telling them that […]

Year 2, week 12: StraightTalking

BlowDry and ClicheClanger came to chambers for the conference today.  It was all quite the talk of the library earlier in the day where the current crop of pupils along with the most junior tenants still tend to hang out when they want to get away from pompousdom.  BlowDry was no different from his TV […]

Year 2, week 12: breathless

‘BabyB.  You’ll never guess what?’  It was ClicheClanger on the phone sounding somewhat breathless. ‘I’m sure I would but do go on.’ ‘Well.  We’ve got ourselves a new case.  Hairdresser by the name of BlowDry.  You’ve probably seen it in the papers.  Been accused of being straight.  Wants to sue.  Says he’s heard about our […]

Year 2, week 12: BlowDry

ScandalMonger sent me my first case of my own today.  Really quite a step up from most of my little cases.  Seems a celebrity chef who I’ll call Soufflé  accused a celebrity hairdresser (who I can only call BlowDry) of being heterosexual on primetime television.  Said that the camp façade is all just for image […]

Year 2, week 11: AbuseOfProcess

UpTights has been working on JudgeJewellery’s case today.  The difficulty is that CheapnNasty, the shop from which she had been stealing the jewellery, has come back with a load of CCTV evidence showing her stealing all sorts of other jewellery on numerous occasions in the past.  They’re also threatening to go to their competitors to […]

Year 2, week 10: NotSoFast

Call back from old ScandalMonger himself today.  Guess what?  He’s in and RoundTheBlock has already booked her ticket out of the country. Hey, hey.  Not so fast.  If we now know we’re going to win, do we really want to be telling the other side at this stage?  When we’re on a 100% success fee […]

Year 2, week 10: DealOn

‘Okay.  So here’s the deal,’ I said to ScandalMonger, trying to sound more confident than I actually felt.  ‘RoundTheBlock becomes our witness.  Decides to tell a new story about how someone from RedTop came to her and offered her cash in return for making a story up about BigMouth.  You and she get another front […]

Year 2, week 10: TheDeal

‘So here’s the deal BabyBarista.  I’ll pass on my juiciest cases to you and that pompous old QC of yours [well, he obviously had the inside track there]…’ ScandalMonger looked over his ridiculous sunglasses as we sat there in some swanky restaurant in Soho and then continued, ‘…in return for which you will provide me […]

Year 2, week 10: ScandalMonger

Wow.  So this is how it goes with BigMouth’s case.  We wrote to the other side the week before last giving them the evidence I had discreetly gathered on RoundTheBlock.  They wrote back last week telling where in particular to stick that offer.  No real surprise there given the bullish stance RedTop have been taking […]
