The Tuesday Truth

PUBLISHED March 3, 2015

Read this week's Tuesday Truth, by Subashini Nathan. Subashini was called to the Bar in 2013 and is currently an immigration paralegal at Birnberg Pierce and Partners, seeking pupilage.
Subashini was brought up near Rochester Castle, which in 1215 was held by the baronial forces against the Crown. It was the site of a seven week siege led by King John. Severe food shortages led to Rochester surrendering to the King, but his victory was brief as King John died the following year. 800 years later, Subashini laments how we find ourselves still struggling with arbitrary and unaccountable power.
