The Diary editor received a fax recently which made his blood run cold:
it was from a firm of solicitors, and it wasn’t Campaign’s.
This usually kicks off hours of stressful comings and goings, and ends
up with a moaning minnie withdrawing their complaint in return for a
‘clarification’. However, this time it was a law firm doing a bit of PR
Schilling and Lom sent us a piece from the Times telling of how it broke
with centuries of legal tradition and served a High Court injunction by
‘This precedent will make the service of proceedings, particularly
outside the country, faster and less expensive. It must be the way
forward,’ the firm states.
Um, what if you haven’t checked your e-mail for about three weeks? Um,
what if someone else gets your e-mail? Um, what if you get rid of your
e-mail address? The Diary editor awaits all correspondence - by post.
