Reply Link m 3 March 2009 at 10:26 the last poster is a selfish idiot who can’t distinguish between a worthy and unworthy cause. And if you were only employed through an act of charity, you should be grateful you ever had a job there at all. Reply Link Anonymous 3 March 2009 at 11:22 Charity begins at home lady!!! Don’t be fooled by Links’ involvement with charitable causes – they are only playing the charity card to try and raise profile. I am merely trying to point out that Satan occasionally helping out at a soup kitchen doesn’t change who Satan is. Reply Link M 3 March 2009 at 11:31 Pro bono Pro bono doesn’t directly use cash, it uses labour (i.e. lawyers); and finding work for lawyers that wouldn’t otherwise be doing much gives those lawyers a much better chance of keeping their jobs than would their simply sitting around the office making elastic band balls and waiting for the phone to ring. So it’s a win-win situation, regardless of your own personal misfortune. Reply Link Anonymous 3 March 2009 at 11:42 Charity begins at home lady!!! Do you even work at Links? Of course they have donated cash in the past. I’ve seen how snobbish the partnership is and their double standards are never more visible than in their charity work. It’s all very well helping some kid in get off the streets but when was the last time that one of those kids grew up and was allowed to work for the firm?
