#2

Leonard?


#3

Yes, who could Leonard be? Played by a 74 year-old actor, Paul Copley. I suppose he must be the ‘guest at Brookfield’. Or is he the judge at Brian’s hearing?


#4

The judge seems unlikely to be listed as a forename. Brian’s brief?


#5

I suppose I was thinking of the age of the actor, but I see your point. Brian’s solicitor is a woman. Will he have a barrister? Surely he’d call Anna Toboggan! Well, no, actually, not a happy match, I’d say.


#6

On previous form she’d

a. Be hopeless
b. Be drunk
c. Be in the middle of personal stuff
d. Fall lucky with an unexpected and unlikely witness & get him off Scot free. (Who was ‘Scot’ btw ??)


#7

(e) all of the above.

Armers:

Old English scotfreo “exempt from royal tax,” from scot “royal tax,” from Old Norse skot “contribution,” literally “a shooting, shot; thing shot, missile” (from PIE root *skeud- “to shoot, chase, throw;” the Old Norse verb form, skjota, has a secondary sense of “transfer to another; pay”) + freo (see free (adj.)). First element related to Old English sceotan “to pay, contribute,” Dutch schot, German Schoß “tax, contribution.” French écot “share” (Old French escot) is from Germanic.
