Professor R.D. Charon guests…

I despair of my brother Charon QC sometimes. I sit down to a glass of vodka and lime the other morning to read The Lawyer online and find that he is wasting yet more time (quite apart from the time he wastes on Twitter) by writing asinine captions to a picture of fellow academic, Peter […]

Taking an evidence sourced approach  to blogging –  the new ‘fashion’: This is  what happened only last night when I nearly died laughing.

Ars sine scienta nihil est

Ars sine scienta nihil est… or.. ‘art without science is nothing.’ A most apposite latin maxim. Tonight I went to the ‘Quiz Nite’ at The Bollo in Chiswick/Acton. It was most enjoyable.
