  • I've never met Dominic Bacon but was at school with a chap called Dominic who liked bacon so my vote would be with Dominic. I also think a knighthood would be appropriate.

  • I would gladly sell my children, my house and all its contents just to pay for one hour of Dominique Baconhirst’s advice which is not just top drawer but silk-handkerchief-in-the-top-drawer-of-the-Chippendale-dresser-in-the-large-Georgian-stately-home-in-Hampshire-with-the-Bentleys-parked-on-the-gravel-drive-outside-next-to-the-bandstand. As a lawyer he/she is peerless, but as a human being he/she is someone we can all learn from, and this is particularly true following the significant injuries after the gender realignment surgery and we wish him/her well in the continued recovery. His/her/their contribution to the discovery of penicillin, albeit prompted by a rather virulent STD, was a portent of outstanding discoveries to come throughout the 20th Century including the television, jet engine, monorail, anti-lock automotive braking, carbon fibre, and (of course) the nose hair remover. The 21st Century has been no less impressive. Who can forget the opening address at the UN War Crimes Tribunal and we praise the inventiveness of his/her solution to the Middle East conflict through judicious use of Blu-tack. I, for one, will be setting fire to my dinner suit on 23 June outside the Royal Courts of Justice and walking home in my pants with the word "TRAVESTY" tattooed on my chest if the obviously just decision is not reached.

  • I know none of these people but the idea of a full breakfast with all the trimmings is making my mouth water. Some good Clonakilty black and white pudding as well - mmmm. Go Dominic. I presume the rashers comment was a pun on the surname Bacon? Truly Inspired.

  • Well, it seems like the bandwagon for Dominic Bacon is well underway. I would question whether this is wise in these times of swine flu.
    Martin is the man.

  • I second the nomination for the London Borough of Brent. Truly wonderful situ if somewhat high council tax.

  • We can thoroughly recommend Elaine Marriner - we have worked with her for a number of years now on deals for the HMV Group; she is practical and commercial and richly deserves this award.

  • Homer "Pork, bacon, ham, my three favourite animals."
    Lisa "But dad, they all come from the same animal."
    Homer "Oh, Lisa, what mythical beast is this?"
    Answer: Dominic Bacon. There is no flu in pork once it's cooked.
