BBC NEWS | England | Hereford/Worcs | Man challenges fine with 1689 law

A man has invoked the 1689 Bill of Rights to fight a 60 parking fine from Worcester City Council at a tribunal.
Robin de Crittenden, 67, of Willenhall, near Wolverhampton, argues the bill protects people from having to pay fines until convicted by a court.
He said the challenge aimed "to put the politicians back in their kennels".
The National Parking Adjudication Service reserved judgment on the case but is expected to notify the parties of an outcome later this month.

We will be announcing the decision from the Decrittenden v Worcester Parking Appeal case at a Press Conference at 11am outside the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand in London.

The press release is being prepared (will be circulated at 6pm tomorrow) and the implications of the decision by Adjudicator, Mr. Prickett, will have a knock-on effect for all Decriminalised Parking Enforcement local authorities as well as the National Parking Adjudication Service.

Needless to say, the decision is precisely what was expected...more to follow.


Sadly, unlikely to work;
"There have been a number of cases where the Bill of Rights has been argued to refute liability for a penalty charge notice [...] none have succeeded"

So, another waste of public money at court, then.

I know I should be on his side - but he might have left his car in an ambulance bay, for all we know.

The more the British government carries on treating the constitution with contempt, the more happy I am I live in a third world country.

At least when our "leaders" treat the law like some sort of toy we can just shrug our shoulders; we expect nothing better. But for a British government to act like a bunch of gromboolian thugs.....words fail me. I'm off to shoot some endangered species and drink vast quantities of whisky, though not necessarily in that order.
