  • "It’s a recipe for disaster." Get a sense of perspective. I doubt that the busy lift disaster of 2011 will be remembered.

  • I think the clerks should be equipped with rockets attached to their back, just like 007 in the opening sequence of "Thunderball".
    Problem sorted.
    Make it happen.

  • Clerks should be 'seen and not heard' and instead made to use the stairs. They are paid far too much in any event and should be thankful that they are not tossing oranges for a living, a career which most clerks are obviously accustomed.
    Appalling to hear the views of clerks in a publication designated for lawyers!

  • This is a familiar problem to users of the Thomas More Building and St Dunstan's, and it will be a remarkable failure if the problem from those buildings has been built in to the Rolls Building. But if it has, then the situation could be much improved if court sitting times were slightly staggered.

  • Staggered start times would be an ideal solution to an age old problem.
    To Anonymous | 8-Feb-2011 6:20 am, if you think I am walking up the stair with ten lever arch files then you must think me a monkey.
    Your comments are offensive to the clerking profession and to say we shouldn't be catered for by publications like The Lawyer is bl*&dy rude.

  • @Anonymous 11.08am - looks like you fell hook, line and sinker for the provocation (it's a wind up)........which, as you didn't spot that, perhaps may mean that @Anonymous 6.20am, is not so wrong after all. Although, personally, all the clerks I've met have been more switched on than most of the barristers (who in turn treat the clerks like cr*p.) But, if you must be butlers to the legal upper class....expect to be treated that way....

  • I was not under the impression that clerking was a profession, more a subservient pastime. As I said before, it's become an appalling state of affairs when clerks are given a voice in the legal press. Clerks should stick to what they are good at namely, racing their heavily tarted up XR3s around the streets of Romford rather than criticizing the lift situation at the Rolls Building. Freedom of speech for all (except clerks). It is the way to go.

  • Asked for a quote in usual way, Rage on my part, what do you think. Sense of perspective required by all who have found time to comment

  • Can't wait to see Brian queuing up with a trolley at the lifts in the new Rolls Building.
