Another parking fine and so another court case. Bigot this time had inadvertantly placed his ticket on the dashboard but upside down.
B-J : May I beg the court's permission , your honour , to start off my defence with a quote
Judge : I trust it is relevant to your defence
B-J : Oh indeed it is....

Counsel for the claimant : I object your honour...... this statement is a wicked lie....
Judge : How dare interrupt the defendant.......I wish to hear him out
B-J : Thank you your honour......" Their intimidating letters are intended to frighten , and their message is quite simple .....stand and deliver ; the motto of the highwayman in a long bygone era.
