It is a bit early in the new year for any law firm, or lawyer for that matter, to have managed to get themselves into the Darwin Awards or appear as a feature on RollonFriday or Legal Cheek, so I shall have to content myself with other matters…
This transatlantic trade deal is a full-frontal assault on democracyBrussels has kept quiet about a treaty that would let rapacious companies subvert our laws, rights and national sovereignty
“The purpose of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is to remove the regulatory differences between the US and European nations. I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago. But I left out the most important issue: the remarkable ability it would grant big business to sue the living daylights out of governments which try to defend their citizens. It would allow a secretive panel of corporate lawyers to overrule the will of parliament and destroy our legal protections. Yet the defenders of our sovereignty say nothing.
Reflecting on the death of the wonderful John Fortune and his satirical creations, with John Bird, led me to Google. There is a big difference between ‘satirical’ and satyrical. An error of typing led me into a very strange world of Google pics. At least some lawyers only wear the hair of a horse on their heads. The amateur Satyrs go for a half man half horse look. It isn’t a good look, judging by the pictures on offer on Google.
RIP one of the creators of Sir George Parr – the clips always worth a second or third look.
Well..there we are. The new year is underway and a bit of real work beckons.
