NE Derbyshire’s email filters are terribly, terribly prim. Being in the Council offices must be like an episode of the Waltons.

Also ‘this email is confidential’? I somehow very much doubt that.

Giles Peaker is a solicitor and partner in the Housing and Public Law team at Anthony Gold Solicitors in South London. You can find him on Linkedin and on Twitter. Known as NL round these parts.

      Wonderful! Of course, what you don’t have are any of my email updates containing mild profanity…
