Voting opened today (3rd July ) for the post of Vice-Chair of the CBA. Manifestos from the candidates were limited to 750 words. Although I agree with the idea that it should be possible to express any given idea in more or less any given amount of words my original draft was much longer. In the hope that some would like to read the full version you can find it on the link below.
The sentiments expressed in my manifesto will not please everyone in my profession; that is probably impossible. But if you do think we need radical solutions to deal with a dangerous threat to the future of the independent criminal Bar then I will try to provide the kind of leadership that will be necessary to bring that about.
