I was having an argument in the pub today with a blogger who’ll remain nameless, but only if he now sends me a grovelling email. He said we should be grateful that Britain doesn’t have a written constitution because if it did the lawyers would be in control. I pointed out that they already are: the Cabinet’s full of them. He said I was exaggerating and that there are only a two or three. By the power of Google I say he’s wrong: 8 out of 23 strikes me as a lawyer-heavy way to run a country.
