Off to Temp Office ... Sun, Sea, Smokes, JD, Rock Music, Beach Babes ... No Smokophobes or Smoking Ban!

The Office
l'll be away for a week or so ... things may be quiet around here ... but then again, maybe not. :)


  1. Smug bastard. You could have hired busses and took the rest of the UK smokers with you...bitch. :)

  2. Friends ... l have a host of friends :)

  3. have a great time, I certainly did.


  4. All these foreign places....Got It!!!You are Prince Edward and I claim my £5.

  5. 'Ere, you never told me you were going! Or did you? Anyway, I wasn't paying attention.

    In court today again. Parking ticket number 26. (SH knows, but you lot don't). All for the same place. It was adjourned, cos the Prosecution hadn't expected a fight and hadn't brought their witnesses. WTF?? So I remain undefeated.

    I can't lose this, it's just about how much entertainment I can extract from it.

    I can win on their procedural mistakes. (Always check the paperwork, they ALWAYS make mistakes!)

    I can win on the condition of the lines, again. (Davies v Heatley 1971), (HT to Pepipoo.) (Don't try this if your council has privatised the parking tickets).

    Or, (Big grin), today I got the Magistrate to force the Prosecution to give me a copy of the 1992 order for the lines in question- As I suspected, the 24 metres of yellow lines should be 15 metres! Hahahaha! Gotcha!

    But I might save this piece of info for now. After I win the council wil repaint the lines again, (the fourth time!) Then I'll get more tickets. Then I'll win again on the excess length. Then they'll repaint the lines again. Then I'll be able to park outside my house. Also outside the evil crone opposite who keeps reporting me. But so will everyone else! I like it the way it is, actually.

  6. Zaphod, why don't you write it all up properly as an article? Chapter and verse, the full SP? I know it isn't directly smoking related but it's still interesting and might be useful for some readers.

    And anything about Fighting The Man (*punches fist in air*) is always relevant even if the 'man' in question isn't the UKBA.

    Now excuse me while I go find my 'Che' T-Shirt and my copy of the Anarchist's Cookbook....

    Love, Peace and Plastique Dudes.

  7. Ummmmm, Actually SBC, you may find that the Anarchist's Cookbook could also land you in trouble these days. Shirley it is banned material as information useful to a terrrrrrirrrist. People have been nabbed for less. (I know you were joking....hope, you were joking)


"In the eyes of the Tribunal the review letter contained several preconceptions, prejudgments and non-sequiturs"

"the absurdity of this reason is demonstrated by simply stating it"

"We therefore find that Mr Sked misdirected himself as to the Policy in carrying out the review and his decision is therefore one that no reasonable review officer could have arrived at."

... commonly known here at N2D as 'Skeds' ... that is to say these are Judges comments regarding UKBA Review Officer Ian Sked's reasons for rejecting peoples appeals against seizures.
