An insult to intelligence

At a time when the Law Society is trying to fight possibly the most anti-lawyer Lord Chancellor in the history of the profession, what is the contribution to the Law Society election discussion from one of the profession's leaders? Answer: he calls his opponent a "pillock" and another lawyer a "dog turd".

Leaving aside the paucity of his vocabulary, it is the level at which the election is being fought that must be of concern to us all. When the profession should be at its most united, articulate and focused, is this what it has come to?
