Nigel MacGeorge, The Metropolitan Police has acted as the prosecutor, the jury and the judge in its internal court of law by handing out fixed penalty notices. I was one caught speeding in 30 mph zone and the Police handed me such a notice or attend a speed awareness course to escape the fine. When I started probing the legality and circumstances and this caused a minor delay Kent Police issued summons for me to appear before a Magistrates Court that I challenged by issuing a counter prosecution against the Police for wrongful summons as I had been prepared to attend the Speed awareness course and pay the fixed penalty for speeding but the Police did not reply to my email The Magistrate Liaison officer decided to ignore my counter prosecution of Kent Police and fined me more than the amount I was having to pay originally with points on my driving licence. This was 2017 Spring time. I appealed against the Magistrate Courts sentencing and decision not to let me counter prosecute Kent Police and am still waiting to know what Maidstone Crown Court will decide. Steve Bray, only the exposition of truth is justice. Once the Metropolitan Police has finished its investigation and justified its decisions to each and every Fixed Penalty Notice it issues the defendants can challenge and file an Appeal in in a proper High Court against the judgment of the Police. The fact that some have paid their immediate fines does not mean that they have a criminal record. It is a civil matter at this stage. That is why the Metropolitan Police issued the fixed penalty notices drip by drip. So, the law has a very long way to run potentially. If Boris Johnson uses up his evidence now, he will suffer long term damage to his reputation including the Prime Ministership. No one can read another person’s mind as to the basis of their behaviour so Metropolitan Police has to be careful.
