Readers will be aware that this writer has been found not fit and proper for admission to practise law in NSW (see story below).
Among the findings against this writer was the finding that this writer appears to have a problem with authority; examples of how this writer has demonstrated disrespect for the Chief Justice, the Governor, the Attorney General, and especially the senior managers of the College Of Law (to whom the NSW LPAB feels this writer owes an apology, to each and everyone concerned , individually).
So, it was with some degree of consolation that this writer read this recent study into the traits of millionaires and billionaires:
Having said that,coming from the Ceylon Tamil community which has produced most of Malaysia and Singapore's lawyers,this writer is more than familiar with the protocols of addressing judges,and can say that that acceptable conduct that has been witnessed in Australia, and in particular NSW would be regarded as evidence of poor upbringing by Asian standards.
