James Grout: Mr. Justice Oliphant


  • [Ballard is defending Rumpole at the disciplinary tribunal] 

    Samuel Ballard Q.C. : You are known in some quarters as "The Quality of Mercy". Now if there were to be a most humble, contrite apology...

    Mr. Justice Oliphant : Rumpole would rather be disbarred than apologise to me.

    Samuel Ballard Q.C. : But if he would...

    Mr. Justice Oliphant : [gleefully]  If he would, it would give him more genuine grief and pain than anything else in the world. I'd enjoy seeing that, I really would.
