Last drags at Lovells

Oh the iniquity of it all.

Not even lawyers, it seems, are immune to the Government’s wide-ranging slashing of civil liberties. For, with less than two days to go before the smoking ban comes into effect, poor Lovells is being forced to shut the door on its skiving… sorry… smoking room for the final time.

But never fear, those friendships formed over a pack or two of Marlboros can be, er, rekindled when the room is reopened, and hopefully refurbished, in the coming weeks. For after much fumigation the room will be handed back to the lawyers.

The firm is casting around for ideas on a new use for the room. Current bets are on a multi-faith prayer room or a table football area (see story). Other suggestions gratefully received.
