Soul practice

I read Paul Nicholls' comment in Square Mile (2 August) with a sense of disbelief.

Obviously he is totally unaware of the challenges and threats faced by the vast majority of the profession when he says "it is difficult for the profession to complain about the application of laws from which many of its members make a good living". Oh to be safely ensconced in an ivory tower in the City!

Surely the legal profession has enough to worry about? He is, of course, right to suggest that we "examine our souls" but, unless we are careful, the legal profession is in grave danger of disappearing up its own "our soul".
