Court Tomorrow

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to court I go....

Tomorrow morning I will make a special appearance at the Intermediate Diet. This Diet is for both sides to confirm that they are ready for the Trial and I am supposed to confirm that I will not change my plea at Trial. The whole event will take less than 60 seconds, but will involve me hanging around for ages because I am appearing pro se. I noticed last time around that those with lawyers were dealt with before those appearing on their own.

Unusually, I am not going to tell you what I intend to do. The reasons for this are a) they read this blog and b) I am not yet certain which strategy I will use.

I will update you all on the outcome whether it is good, bad or indifferent.

Mind you, if it goes really pear-shaped, I may not be in a position to tell you anything.

Just for the record, I have no current illnesses, nor any history of anything remotely life-threatening, so if I become one of those that expire in custody, avenge my death and stuff.

Be well,

Good luck Captain. we salute your courage and your sacrifice.

Those are the battles that we need to fight. Those are the battles that we willingly join. The battles against ignorance and intolerance. Corruption and Road Traffic Laws.

Captain Ranty said...

Thanks HS.

"Courage and sacrifice" may well morph into "stupidity and naivety" tomorrow morning....

We shall see.

I wish you all the best, maybe you'll be up before an uncorrupt Judge, HaHa!

If you could ask him, does he believe that Constitutional statutes have been repealed, overruled?, refer him to Lord Justice Laws in the case of the Metric Martyrs, LJ Laws says that they, Constitutional Statutes, cannot be repealed.

The Bow and Arrows are ready, just in case.

The terror alert which closed the M6 toll today was caused by a “health improvement aid for smokers”, police said.

He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

Oh, I forgot to ask. Would you prefer the file in a fruit cake or chocolate one?

Anonymous said...

Although I always find it strange saying this when someone is about to walk into a temple of the absurd - best wishes to you, Captain.

Much respect, as ever.



Captain Ranty said...

Thanks for all the good wishes, folks, you really are a great bunch.

Woodsy, I'm partial to chocolate cake. Thanks.


Thanks to you too, especially for the detailed emails you winged my way.

Good luck Captain, I'll be eagerly awaiting an update. When you're standing there imagine us all there with you - you're not alone and I'll be regularly sending positive thoughts out into the ether for you (and saying a little prayer).

All the best mate.


Captain Ranty said...

Thanks all.

Just leaving now.
