Master taken to the cleaners, Thursday 24th June 2010
Breakfast was offered to Masters and Clerks at the Butchers' Hall this morning, to promote their new catering service. http://www.butchershall.com/hall Excellent it was too, and a good start to a long day electing the new Sheriffs and chairing a business court meeting.
At one point however I was thoroughly caught out, telling a story in which the phrase "Taken to the cleaners" featured. No sooner were the words out of my mouth than there was a mock-indignant protest from my right, "I take exception to those words!" by no less than the Master Launderer, Martyn Lewis. Whoops.
