KBO is an acronym for “Keep Buggering On”
Winston Churchill: Right then, KBO.”
I may adopt this KBO thing.
I have come to the conclusion that while I enjoy commentating / commenting on law – the discipline of law is lacking in soul and the human spirit compared to art, literature, philosophy and many other disciplines of academe.
Interesting to me though *Law* is… if I had another life – which I have not quite worked out how to achieve (I may devote the next ten years to solving this ‘problem’) – I would not go into law. The Legal Services Act 2007, legal aid cuts, a generation of poligeeks who do not care that much for LAW when it gets in the way of their vision of life, is about to kick in for your generation… and may gawd have mercy on all our souls?
Well… there we are… how radical is that…? I suspect that I shall not be as welcome at ‘gatherings’ after this ‘revelation’. But it may save me the problem of wasting yet more time worrying about how to *Unfollow* people on twitter…
Fear not… I am still watching the ‘goings on’ of lawyers and politicians… and…. assuming I live for my three score and ten…(I continue to defy medical science as best I can) I shall be nipping orf to find some Chateau Thames Embankment (A ‘homage’ to Sir John Mortimer QC ) to sustain my belief in what is left in our sceptred isle of the ‘Rule of Law’ in these Tory led Coalition days – and, depressingly, days of polbloggers ‘amusing’ themselves by setting up campaigns to bring back the Death Penalty.
Well… it is August… and the silly season… and I have had a minor attack, this day, of recurrent Malaria after getting bitten in Africa in my yoof….
My thoughts on ‘legal blogging’ are in the post below… I shall not be writing about this topic again – nor attending any symposia, colloquia or ‘gatherings’ on the subject in future … simply because I fear that navel gazing on law blogging is not, ultimately, a terribly useful way to spend the limited time we are allowed on earth by the dictats and science of DNA and the bacteria of death. Happy to drink with law bloggers and others… [Bien Sur / Natch] – on the proviso (See Butler v Ex-Cello et al – Terms of The Contract) we talk of other things!
I am… of course… writing for pleasure..and the silly season… or am I?
Whatever the answer… I shall KBO….
I do hope that you will KBO as well…
Have a good week….
Best, as always
