Ms Surgenor and I have had a few email words over the last few days. My reply to her last is below and reading between the lines will allow you to understand the nature of my comments.
“When in the act of erring, and found wanting, as appears to be the case in this instance, (as regards your sexual predilections) I am always quick to raise my hand. And so please accept my most profound apologies and pass same to your receptionist.
Mind you, my own observations could well have been coloured by the plethora of public opinion to which I have recently been exposed. By that I mean; whenever I mention your name some person will metaphorically spit on the ground and utter words such as, ‘Oh, that bloody lesbo.’
In your defence I must also say that the guy who fixes you car did assert you had a few men-friends. And don’t go getting all paranoid. I met him as a part of my regular business and the subject somehow got around to the FC and thus you. Albeit, at the time, you were still pretending to act properly for me.
Isn’t it amazing how innuendo, half-truths, perceptions renamed truth, and so much harsh untruth can so easily contaminate the lives of the innocent? Perhaps you might like to reflect upon that when next you buy into ‘bad man/good woman’ games; games so often played at the inevitable expense of the children involved.
However, I do not resile from my position that you took my money under, essentially, false pretences. You say, in your email reply to my negative comments about your ‘interest’ in my case, that “had I asked” you would have referred me to Hooker. A comment which begs the question, ‘Why would I have had to ask if you were a competent lawyer acting in best faith for ‘my’ position?’ ”
If you had asked for a referral to another lawyer in a matter such as yours I probably would have suggested Rod Hooker
The immediate above were Surgenor’s actual words in her email to me.
” For the record I do know a few decent men and the odd decent woman. But I meet both men and women (mostly through my business) whom I would not be overly happy with having care for my grand-daughter’s dog. These people are often poorly educated, enjoy the intellectual skills or marginalised rabbits, yet hold unswayable opinions based on anything but fact, and leave morality at the door of convenience.
Emblazoned on the metaphorical caps they wear is the word ‘Pragmatist’…. a name used to foreshorten the ethic, ‘Needs must as the devil does.’
I class your conduct, as regards your efforts in my favour, in a similar realm. So I guess I can reasonably refer you to a recently well publicised catch-phrase….”If the cap fits…!” ”
So far, Ms Surgenor has not replied.
