    how about the citizens’ inalienable right to challenge an accusation in court?

    This has always been a grey area, often left up to the judge or magistrate whether a successful defendant could reclaim costs but the ethic was there to be used.

    I use the past tense because it has now been proposed by ministers that a motorist successfully challenging a speeding or parking fine should meet the costs of their own defence, which would come out at around £1,500 a throw, hardly worth arguing the toss about a £40 fixed penalty for speeding, is it?

    More to the point is that the right to challenge a court in Britain is centuries old. Are we going to let a bunch of politicians change the ancient laws of our society and overrule our civil rights?

  2. Yes, because they will do it silently, and not tell anyone.

    Standard Operating Proceedure, I believe your mob call it?
  3. Has this not already happened?
  4. I thought this was going to be about ISP's advertising "Unlimited Broadband" but having a "Fair usage policy" in the smallprint.

    I thought it was just going to be about standard Liebour taxation policy.

    Shall I get the bus??
  7. I'd start first parading it if I were you.
  8. I understand that the mighty brain behind this move is none other than Lord Willie Bach. No surprises there then: he was a complete duffer when he was Min (DP) before Paul Drayson, after which he became the person responsible for fcuking up those payments to farmers a couple of years ago.
  9. Er no. It was parked legally but was given a ticket anyway. We're now saving up to mount a successful appeal against the fine.
  10. I think the new type driving licence is a con it only lasts tenyears then you have to pay forty pounds, I think .for a new one. But If you kept the old paper type you dont until it runs out.
  11. Wait until you need to renew your passport!
  12. I am not going to renew any more doc's , sod em Ill stay in Wales from now on ,, and get ride of all the junk I have in various parts of the world, pistols, pump action shotguns and toys that the PC wonkers have baned in UK
  13. Elastoplast. Perfectly legal.
