Unsober as a judge

Tulkinghorn was delighted to hear that the standards at the High Court are being maintained.

The new judges were appointed in mid-September and one lucky chap decided to celebrate in style.

Brian Langstaff QC of Cloisters Chambers set sail for Claridges, where quantities of liquid refreshment were consumed. According to a spy, his fellow celebrators got him “completely trashed”.

Langstaff clearly has a strong constitution. The next day he was in his office looking decidedly chirpy. Tulkinghorn would like to know if anyone wrote anything on his forehead, a la Freddie Flintoff?
