The Master stood trial at the Mansion House last week as part of a fundraising tradition hosted by the Sheriffs of the City of London.  Joined by some 30 of his counterparts, the Master was swiftly charged with several misdemeanours and transported to the Tower of London for a Champagne luncheon, following which the convicts were released on bail, raising a remarkable £33,000 for the British Red Cross.
