A week before the trial I phoned a friend of mine, he is in the legal profession in Ireland. We spoke on the phone and I told him that I had a problem. I had to go to court. He told me he could not talk about the trial. Then I told him it was in UK, not Ireland, and he asked what it was about. I told him in less than 60 seconds; at which he said to me, “Geoff, I’ve known you for many years and I know you can stick up for yourself, but be warned by me, do not tell one lie in court or you will be found out.” “One lie and your evidence will be rubbished.” With this advice I was asked to go see him, upon my return, to report on the proceedings and to arrange to do a lot of interior decorating for him. It’s nice to have a friend. I got good, sound advice and I got work for three weeks. Great.
