Ignore the soft fruit

Imagine an enemy posse rushing towards you. They are dressed in bizarre and elaborate costumes, including papier mache horns, cardboard armour and joke-shop Dracula fangs. Some are brandishing pillows in a threatening manner; others are armed to the teeth with a variety of soft fruit. One has a pointed stick. All are yelling abuse.

Faced with this threat, what do you do? Wrestle them for their cushions? Rugby tackle them, pin them down and try to de-fang them? Yell abuse back, but louder? Ambush them for their fruit and make a summer pudding? Or do you focus all your attention on the threat posed by the pointed stick?

The answer may be obvious – but it is surprising how willing parties to litigation are to be distracted into squabbles that have no chance of determining the outcome of the case.

  1. It is good to see that references to Monty Python still abound, even more than forty years after they were first seen 🙂
