Message from a Hostel – Back to the Future 17

Well Mr. Murphy what is your defence, asked the Justice. Mistaken identity, replied Harry the Liar. My clients were walking home from the Archway Pub on Holloway Road when they passed the Gresham Ballroom doorway and these three dirty ejets fell out on top of them. The dirty rotten hooligans ran away and my clients were physically bundled into the back of the Paddy Wagon by the Police before they had a chance to explain. Chief Prosecutor have you anything to say to these claims by Mr. Harry Murphy on behalf of his clients. I fail to understand how this relates to mistaken identity my Lord. Mr Murphy has placed his clients at the scene. Objection your Lordship, shouted Harry, this is all hear-say my lord, all hear-say.

Harry then glanced at his Law Dictionary and shouted, case adjourned your Lordship. Mr. Murphy I think that is my function to adjourn cases not yours, replied the Magistrate. Holly Feck, cried Alistair, I agree Doc we are rightly Bolloxed. Chief Prosecutor could you please remind the court why these two gentlemen are here, Mr. Harry Murphy has me a little confused. Mr. Murphy I think I would like to hear what your clients have to say on these charges. Please state your name for the court and swear to tell the truth the whole….. to be continued
