Did you miss me?
I have been working away and earlier completed a submission of nearly 19,000 words for an upcoming case. Despite temptation, I did not illustrate it with suitable photos or clip-art images – some Sheriffs don’t like that. 😦
If you want to know about tongue and groove plywood, dwangs, flexible expansion joints, underfloor “wet system” heating and the National Building Specifications (November 2011 edition), then I’m your man!
Don’t worry, there are still lots of things to write about!
For example, after the stooshie (or storm in a teacup) caused by Jack Irvine, king of Media House, saying on Twitter that a piece I had written was very perceptive, I wanted to tell the exclusive story of me and Jack – and it will be told!
The Rangers EGM will now be “rolled into” the AGM, although the Stock Exchange has not been told that – maybe different people are responsible for the Rangers website announcements and its Stock Exchange notices?
In the law a seismic change – the Dean of the Faculty of Advocates permitting advocates to appear without an instructing solicitor beside them – it may not sound much, but it is likely to make a big difference to litigation where counsel are involved and will be used, especially by insurers, to try to cut down the legal costs of claims – and the Scottish Legal Aid Board will not be far behind, one can be sure.
And quote of the year?
It comes from the story that animal welfare organisations want to prevent Shaktar Karagandy sacrificing a sheep before their match with Celtic tomorrow.
As the BBC reports:-
However, the Scottish SPCA has contacted Celtic expressing its concern.
“There are strict rules regulating the transport and slaughter of animals in Scotland and it is only permitted in licensed premises,” said a spokeswoman.
“Killing a sheep in this way would be a criminal offence and anyone involved could face prosecution.
And the quote of the year?
“We are currently seeking assurance from Celtic Park that no sheep will be allowed on the premises ahead of the match.”
