This week sees the departure of Iona Thompson, one of the kindest, most hardworking and extraordinary social people ever to brighten the lives of the Johnsons contingent.
We still hope to preserve our links and friendship with Iona.
It has to be accepted that life as a defence solicitor is never easy. Work environments are often hostile, hours are long and many clients are exacting and demanding.
To be able to move to a role where you can work from any remote location, benefit from flexible working and still help people in need, is obviously a really tempting opportunity.
We wish Iona all the very best and look forward to riotous nights out as soon as we are unlocked.
