The Honest Lawyer

Mr Venal and Mr Grabbit were enjoying a lunchtime tipple at their favourite watering hole, The Honest Lawyer.

"So, Mr Grabbit, what do you think of this new report from the Centre for Social Justice?" Asked Mr Venal, between sips of his G & T.

"Appalling, Mr V, appalling." Replied Mr Grabbit.

"Quite so, Mr Grabbit. Shocking to see how our once great country has declined since the 1960s."

"It certainly is. And the root of all our ills? Cohabitation, that's what." Pronounced Mr Grabbit.

"Indeed." Replied Mr Venal. "Clearly the cause of our broken society."

There followed a pause.

"Still, " said Mr Grabbit, "one mustn't complain. After all, family breakdown is at record levels. Fancy another G & T?"

"Don't mind if I do, Mr Grabbit." Replied Mr Venal.
