Picture this. A lawyer, in a toilet, mobile phone in one hand, the old chap in the other, while on the phone to a nice legal journalist. Surely this would never happen.
Well Tulkinghorn can vouch that it certainly did. And while the lawyer in question thought it was perfectly okay to conduct a conversation while relieving himself – it wasn't.
Now Tulkinghorn is sure that everyone is dying to know who this weak-bladdered individual is. Tulkinghorn has wrestled with his conscience on whether to reveal who this chap is. And his conclusion? What the hell, it was Clifford Chance's own banking star James Johnson who was on the Eurostar when nature and The Lawyer came calling at the same time. What Tulkinghorn wants to know is – what's wrong with crossing your legs?
