Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye!!!







Monday 11th July 2011: Scone Local Court - Defended Hearing

Crime of not wearing bicycle helmet whilst riding bicycle

---------------------------------------------------------

Outfit: not suit (yuck!-hate), something 'Carmen-y', evoking 'tragedy-between-mens-loos-&-paella stand' - CHECK ✓

Documents: submissions for court, police prosecutor, me; copies of 'The Guardian' on catastrophic climate change; SAI licence; helmet manual; relevant cases; relevant legislation - CHECK ✓

Supporters: one 'wary' baby no.3 - previously absent for 'moments-like-these', looking like he's wondering how he ended up being only Abbott rellie in Scone!!!, + fab 'usual-suspect-chums'- CHECK ✓

Meedya Circus: media release sent to lots of potentials - PROBABLY NOT X

...will keep you posted!!!

  7. I am not going to wish you good luck... helmets has nothing to do with luck, they are just a bad experiment with negative outcome in it's 22nd year from political populisme.
    Luck is a coincidence. So let sanity prevail...
