David Potter is the bane of Cleaver's life. A scrupulously honest barrister who specialises in taxation matters, David represents the Tax Office in its on-going case against Cleaver - who hasn't paid tax for a very, very long time.
David has lived a pure life - as he has always seen a future in politics for himself. From humble beginnings, he studied hard and did very well at uni. But he's also the guy at the party who's never taken a tab of acid ... Not because he thinks there's necessarily anything wrong with it - he's no wowser - he fears a question from a journalist - some time down the track - about his past. So, he has sacrificed ... and continues to do so.
He hopes those sacrifices will be rewarded. And that those who don't sacrifice, who don't pay their dues ... like Cleaver Greene, will be exposed for what they are and suffer the appropriate consequences.
