Year 3, week 12: it wasn’t me

Along with the rest of the Bar, I’ve just received a letter from the Chief Executive of the Bar Council. It says: “In the early evening of Friday 12 December 2008, a break in occurred at the rear of the Bar Council offices…This resulted in damage to a number of offices and the theft of some IT equipment. This included a laptop computer and four hard-drives that were undergoing routine off-site back-up…The purpose of this note is to inform you of the stolen data…” It then goes on to say that this included the name, contact address and date of birth of all practising barristers as well as the name, bank account number and sort code of all Direct Debit payers.

Now, you well be starting to get just a little suspicious given that you already know that I’ve been making efforts to get TopFirst’s financial details through my little phishing scheme last week. Well, I have just one thing to say to that. In the inimitable words of the great Shaggy himself: “It wasn’t me”.

    Absolutely brilliant. I have to say, when I got this letter from the Bar Council this week, I did wonder whether it could be someone who had been reported for misconduct. It never occurred to me it might be you in your vendetta with TopFirst.
    As they say, methink he doth protest too much…
