Millionaire Clifford Chance Partner Slums It For The Night – And We’re Meant To Be Impressed?

The bad thing about being homeless, I’d assume, is that you have nowhere to live, every night, indefinitely. Sleeping rough as a one off – as Clifford Chance’s London managing partner David Bickerton (pictured) did very publicly last week for charity – seems like something very different. Indeed, one may question the tastefulness of a millionaire spending the night on the street to raise money for homeless people…


The other way to look at it, I guess, is that Bickerton is demonstrating a solidarity with the downtrodden, and in doing so evoking that great Oscar Wilde line: “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”.

Still, feels more like tourism to me…
