Having lived in Scotland I'm not unaware of some of the English issues in history and from there I moved to Australia where I was often referred to as a Pommie, so yes, I get that, but it was 150-200 years ago. Australia managed to work out a better system that teh US though and they don't have a lot of people in prisons now.

The US has managed to convince people that we need politicians and other elected officials that are "tough on crime" in the belief that we can beat/frighten the crime out of people or that it acts as a deterrent. Doesn't seem to work, but nopolitican has teh balls to admit that and suggest any alternative - at least not in the mainstream at least.

hmm, so turning up to court with a baseball bat isnt a good idea? only joking, im gonna be on my best behaviour and look nice and smart, lose the beard and the earings, hide my tats and speak calmly and politely. now ive just got 10 days to practise all that bullshit.
You got it. Is it a magistrates court? If so try to get your attorney to find out which magistrate and check his record to see what works with him/her and what doesn't.

and given your recent trouble apparently england didn't purge enough of its prisoners during the 18th century.

Geeto, I hope you're not suggesting that Tony should be speaking in an Australian accent :D

It's all a bit of a fuck up really innit, as soon as you get the black bastards involved, any sense of justice goes out the window.

It not really surprising that the English justice system is so fucked up when you consider that 200 years ago they thought it was a good idea to send their prisoners to a tropical paradise.

Good luck with beating the charges Tony (no pun intended).
