Performed by:

#20 in Rumpole of the Bailey

The delightfully unpredictable barrister, Horace Rumpole, returns for another adventure with the legal system.ASBOs may be the pride and joy of New Labour, but they don't cut much ice with Horace Rumpole. He takes the old-fashioned view that if anyone is going to be threatened with a restriction of their liberty, then some form of legal proceeding ought to be gone through first. When one of the Timson children is given an ASBO for playing football in the street, Rumpole soon realizes something fishy is going on.
