Bill of Rights Pandora's Box set to be re-opened

This is most certainly going to re-open the conflict between the Bill of Rights 1689, parking fines and the Metric Martyrs judgment.

The Council had also 'no contested' the case therefore there was technically no fine or forfeiture.

Perhaps it is time for Mr. Decrittenden to get another parking ticket.
