I am a legal professional and sometime script-writer who calls Hampstead "home".
The five things I cannot live without are freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom of movement, property rights and contract. The rest is sometimes desirable but always negotiable.
My favourite travel destination is South-East Asia and my favourite movie of all time is "Sideways".
As a host, I like to look out for my guests without looking over them.
I don't have a motto, but if I did it would be "Beware of mottos".
