Another moment of pure joy when you are running a case which all around you thinks is unwinnable and you get the first confirmation in the evidence that you are going to be able to knock down the other side’s deck of cards. It is even better if the other side cannot see the significance of what just happened.
Regrettably this is not what happened to me today. Au contraire. Judge very cross with me because though I am agreeing with his point I consider him stuck with the law as decided by the House of Lords & he has rather taken against me as a consequence. There probably ought to be a word for that too – preferably not the one he threw in my general direction which just possibly might have been disgraceful. You will just have to trust me that I did not deserve it.
