I'm too sexy to be powerful

In a piece on the 100 most influential men in the UK, GQ made the surprising assertion that celebrity lawyer Keith Schilling, senior partner of boutique media firm Schillings, is the most influential man in law. Schilling, the only practising solicitor on the list of politicians, businesspeople and celebrities, made number 68, while Master of the Rolls Lord Woolf took 75th place and the Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine came a lowly 79th. GQ also placed Schilling above entrepreneur and household name Richard Branson (71st) and the leader of the Conservatives Iain Duncan Smith (73rd). Those on the GQ list were judged on these criteria: fame factor, media influence and where they were going next. In particular, Tulkinghorn would like to extend his sympathies to Derry Irvine over GQ's assessment of where he is going next. Apparently, his future lies in “campaigning to get rid of those wigs”.
