I had the wonderful opportunity of spending time right out in the middle of the countryside – having had lunch with some friends who own a cottage literally at the end of a farmer’s track, they are surrounded by fields – all arable. Where, you are quite right in thinking, is there any connection with legal, law, slicitors etc. in this little piece? Well, old your horses. The farmer who owns all the land around their garde has diversified – fearing too many negatives of the brexit vote and shambolic progress thus far.
The many guests who have signed up to the syndicates are all high flyers themselves – of a different kind. Lawyers, barristers, a couple of local recorders and magistrates are amongst this happy band. They come with expensive guns, very expensive motors and the sure fire knowledge that they are all doing something legal, safe (to an extent) and so very, very English.
