On the subject of names, last week an unfortunate accident occurred in the rarefied surroundings of the Temple.

A certain KLegal tax litigation director had attended a meeting and might possibly have indulged in a couple of sherries. Perhaps – just perhaps – he was a little unsteady as he made his way to the exit, only to find it had just been shut.

Not to worry, he thought, he'd simply use the exit on the other side. Unfortunately, by the time he reached it, that exit was shut as well. Being a resourceful chap and inspired by the sherry that was still warming his cockles, he proceeded to climb over the gate, only to painfully catch a vital part of his anatomy on the way over.

His name? James Bullock.
