As to calling them when in trouble, if it is a legal problem what choice would you have? They have enjoyed a closed shop for 200 years in my country.Until very recently a U K solicitor could not represent a client in court ,that was the sole prerogative of a lawyer.
Anyway enough , it was only a light hearted joke , one I am sure Seamus did not mean personally. Better to laugh with, than be laughed at don't you think?
