Growing up fast

Tulkinghorn would like to offer his thanks to RadcliffesLeBrasseur consultant Robert Bieber for the lift back to Lawyer Towers the other day on the back of his Yamaha Tmax 500cc scooter.

For Tulkinghorn this was a taste of life in the fast lane (or at least the outer lane of Hyde Park Corner). For Bieber, it didn’t even amount to a rehearsal for the main event, due to take place in three years when the charities specialist hits the ripe old age of 70.

“I’m hoping to ride from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska,” said Bieber. “I’ll do it if I can raise half a million quid for charity.”
