I have no problem with anonymous comments, as I have repeatedly made clear. However, the thread on Universities below has got a little tangled. Can I therefore urge prospective commentators who wish to preserve anonymity to indulge their imaginations and give themselves a nom de plume? When I took Bar Finals one had to invent a name to show that one knew how to sign an Opinion and a Pleading. Thus was Lydia Dustbin born, although the late Fiona Dix-Dyer went one better and referred to herself as Kizmee Hardy throughout. Alternatively, you could be “Pissed-off Student” or “Future Brick Court Tenant”. It just helps to make clear who is arguing with who.
Tomorrow is the Day of Atonement – no food or drink for 25 hours and a long time (in my case 10 hours plus) in the Synagogue. Quite apart from the spiritual benefits (religious people demonstrably live longer, which arguably says something about how much the Almighty wants us), I regard it as good training for preparing a long case. For those of you observing the holy month of Ramadan and currently fasting every day, I extend my admiration and hope that it brings the religious and spiritual benefits for which you pray.
