Whilst not quite on topic, I do recall many moons ago, when “The Generation Game” (younger readers should see Wikipedia) with its conveyor belt of goodies (including a cuddly toy) was in its prime, I dictated a very long list of items that a client wanted from the matrimonial home. At the end of the list I added, chuckling to myself, “a cuddly toy”. A few days after the list had been despatched to the wife’s solicitors I received a telephone call from my client who told me his wife was quite happy with everything he claimed but didn’t know anything about a cuddly toy. Fortunately, the client was a friend and enjoyed my discomfiture as I explained what had happened. The self evident morals of the story: Never joke when you are dictating and always read all dictation very carefully.

Surprised that the exciting, yet confusing, ‘pubic law’ has not yet made an appearance.
