Mark George Q.C.’s speech in support of the consolidated resolution at the CBA rally at Lincoln’s Inn, Saturday 16th November 2013


It’s The ONLY way that such an indescribable Rally . Words fail me.
Put yourself in my shoes: you are not a Lawyer. Yet by a mysterious but apparently readable situation on Twitter where Instructions were given via the famous #CBAMondayMessage I ended up with my bum on one of the Seats in the magnficent Great Hall at Lincolns Inn.

Mark George QC’s Speech took us away, lifted us up, made us soar, cemented our resolution to strike ( Us Non Lawyers to offer novel support). They strike. like blanks of old, we stand by them!!!!

A well deserved standing ovation followed….
