The Ducks are benign… for the most part… but there is a big BUT….

HNY…2012

And… I can only add this for added absurdity…. in these dark days…

But.. if you have time on your hands as a law blogger… do remember… there is always the fame of The Orwell Prize.. (which you have to put yourself up for!)…  not that Orwell would have wanted one… as he said…

Advertising is the rattling of a stick inside a swill bucket.

The last winner.. was a man called Hari... didn’t end up well..  sorry… I should have said.., *Upwell*

An Orwell quote worth remembering….

If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

AND finally on this ludicrous issue of The Orwell Prize….

I wish you well if you do… BUT…..do you  really need a PRIZE as an independent blogger… ?

If you are into the #Leveson Inquiry… this is worth watching to get an idea of what may happen to freedom of the press…possibly.

And… a tweet exchange which I enjoyed…

I explain my comment about law being the nadir of human achievement in this way – If we were truly civilised… we would have no need of law…or regulation.  It is absurd, therefore, to think that we are truly civilised yet… for there are many laws and the world is crawling with lawyers.  Ipso facto… we have not evolved far enough yet?

This is not a criticism of the BSB/ SRA/ Law Society / Bar Council /Legal Ombudsman Johnny et al or any other august body corporate or temporal individual legal practitioner, current or pending  …. but a statement of my belief that Darwin was right… evolution has some way to go yet!

AND… finally.. @legaltwo hits the nail on the head….with these two tweets…

There is still a bit of Rioja on my desk…. well…a fair bit, actually… ….. and.. as my only resolution this year is not to waste anything… I won’t.

If you missed out on the annual round of geegaws and baubles and sundry knighthoods for short sellers….. count yourselves lucky…

Alternatively… you could enter yourselves for the Schmorwell Prize and be a prize winning blogger…. and endlessly RT your win on twitter….

Blogging resumes on the morrow…
