The middle clerk, John is second in command to Billy.
However the two men do not share the same work ethic and while Billy is an old fashioned clerk, John is the future. This often causes friction in the clerks' room. With tensions at boiling point with the arrival of Harriet, John realises he’s capable of offering a 3rd way, and begins to relish some of the ducking and diving Billy has tried so hard to instil.
