We have a saying in danish "Skoma'r bliv ved din læst" which translates
to "Cobbler stay at your workbench".

The fact that he is a lawyer seems to have nothing, if anything to do
with his personal opinion on leap seconds.

In other words:  Yeah, he's entitled to his opinion, just like everybody
else, but he doesn't have any special standing for his opinion, which as
others have pointed out, interfaces badly with reality.
