Year 3, week 27: my identity – yeh right!

Well, the story’s finally out on The Times that I've gone and got myself a book deal with Harry Potter's very own, Bloomsbury Publishing. It’s all set to come out in August and it seems that you can already order advance copies on amazon. But one thing they insisted on was that my identity be […]

Year 3, week 26: LeadingCounsel

Much chatter in the clerks room this morning due to the fact that TheBusker brought his dog into chambers. Given that the dog was actually dragging him along on the lead, HeadClerk was immediately in with: “Ah, your famous dog and leading counsel, I see.”“Wouldn’t have been allowed in my day”, said HeadofChambers.“Oh, I don’t […]

Year 3, week 25: jobsworths

I overheard TheBusker telling HeadClerk this morning about a parking fine he’d be given: “Yes, I was parked about an inch over the edge of the parking bay and only because the first car had already encroached into my own.”“So what did you do?” asked HeadClerk.“Just not worth the time even considering an appeal so […]

Year 3, week 25: I’m appalled…

Following on from BusyBody and UpTights’ banter about OldSmoothie ‘emerging’ last week, BusyBody was telling me this morning what it’s prompted: “Well, it’s all about your google profile these days BabyB and one of the easiest ways to increase the number of high ranking references to you is to leave comments on big news stories […]

Year 3, week 24: emerging

OldSmoothie was lamenting times gone by at Chambers Tea yesterday afternoon. “No-one just emerges any longer.”“What do you mean emerges?” I asked.“Emerges. Just what it says. Appears in place. Emerges from nowhere to take the role.”“And I’m imagining that would be referring to the role of high court judge, would it?” asked BusyBody.“Not just them. […]

Year 3, week 24: bring it on

Well, first it was Worrier being hired to defend the Banksters. Today, it transpired that they’ve gone one step further than that and taken on UpTights and TopFirst as well. All I have to say in response is: “Bring it on. May the game continue and the best wig win.”

Year 3, week 24: banksters

“Hey, BabyB.” It was Worrier and she had rung me on my mobile sounding in a particularly nervous state even for her. “I just wanted to give you a heads up before you found it out from anyone else.”“Found out what?” I asked.“Er, well, I don’t want you to take this the wrong way but […]

Year 3, week 23: TheScreech

Last night I went to a dinner at a certain red brick university in which we were all there to encourage people to apply to the Bar. I assume they organised it on a Tuesday on the basis that students are basically drunk for most of the rest of evenings later in the week. Either […]
