Did you know the Law Society was riddled with allegations of freemasonry in the 1980s?
How would that have played out in court…
We were all sitting in the courtroom, when a stern looking gentleman stepped out from behind the bench. “What’s going on?” I asked. Behind me, someone nervously alerted us to the fact that Lord Turnip had arrived. “He joined that freemason group last night” they whispered. “I heard he now has to go through additional training before he can take back his seat or appoint a judge in his stead”.
As he sits, on the bench in his regal robe, he gazes down, surgically examining the counsel table where the defendant and plaintiff sit. The case he's presiding over today is a breach of contract dispute, but something about it doesn't feel right to him. An idea sparks on how to resolve this dispute. Thoughts so foreign that they would have not occurred to him if he did not go last night, or so he internally justified. On one side, he has the Plaintiff who is a freemason (like himself)– a secret society with world-wide influence, and on the other a ‘average Joe’ Defendant.
Will he be fair with his judgement?
