Overheard in the robing room

Overheard in the robing room:

Barrister 1: I’m representing a man at [EXCISED] Crown Court soon who has paid a contribution of £8000 to his legal aid. It’s a three-day offensive weapon trial.

Barrister 2: What! He could have got a direct access barrister for about a quarter of that.
