Not a problem - I thought that would be the case.

I think that your Brisbane office is just over the road from me, so if you do get a chance to sneak out at some stage, just let me know.

Are the stories about Freehills being slave drivers true?

You could always semaphore with your pocket hankies.

No idea, mate. They're our opponents.

They all are.

Those interested in what to wear to a funeral could do well to have a look at what the inherited status and money and celebrity, leisure and political classes in England wear to a state funeral.

No jeans, shorts or t shirts like the last funeral I attended here.

I suppose a coffee and chatting about pocket hankies and sockless outfits is all billable time for some hapless client ?

Wow that is an epically bad product shot.

 

Indeed, good price though, imo.

Another coup for the dullard son..

The first coup failed didn't it?

I'm not sure how its viewed over there but I've always seen the single strap plain black monk as a fairly conservative formal shoe.

It's Sir Mark Thatcher.

I always wondered why... and the reliable Wiki came up with the answer.

It appears that Denis Thatcher of G&T fame was made a baronet shortly after Baroness Thatcher was given a life peerage.

He was the first guy to be made a baronet since the 1950s so he was granted a hereditary peerage which on his death passed to (now Sir) Mark.

For those who may be fascinated by such things.

For the first time in history an Australian born person was recently made an officer in the Coldstream Guards which is 350 years old and the oldest serving regiment in the British Army.

Yes, didn't even get off the ground.

I prefer single to double monks.

Although I don't own any of either.

I'm intending to pop in for a bit and pick up a goody or two.
