Response to Matt Muttley’s instructions

I asked OldSmoothie how he thought I should answer the instructions which came in last week from Matt Muttley over at the blog of my good friend Charon QC.
“What? That double-dealing little reptile who struts around the high court as if he owns the place? I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him. You write one word in an advice and I guarantee that he’ll be suing you for something or other within six months.”
I think I looked a little taken aback and OldSmoothie ploughed on.
“Don’t you know anything BabyB? He’s the most ruthless and downright nasty solicitor I’ve ever met and the people he hates even more than his employees are barristers.”
“Why’s that?”
“Because he originally qualified as a barrister but wasn’t taken on after pupillage. Had a chip on his shoulder ever since.”
“But what about the cab rank rule?” I asked.
“I think you’ll find that your insurance simply doesn’t cover you against the potential liability that you’d be exposing yourself to with that snake. So I suggest you tell him exactly where he can stick his poison pills.”

Which makes him exactly the sort of person to be doing guest posts on this blog!
