During a witty and insightful speech at the annual WS Society dinner in Edinburgh on Friday night Lord Neuberger, former president of the Supreme Court, told the following joke:
An outrageously charging QC, a moderately charging QC and Santa Claus are put in a room with a £50 note on the table.
The light is switched off and, when it is switched on again, the £50 note has vanished.
Question: Who took the £50 note?
Answer: The outrageously charging QC, of course. The other two don’t exist!
