In todays' Daily Telegraph: It was a busy day in the court and tribunal systems, with quite a variety of cases heard. Page 5 has a collection of these, which include a member of the Anti-German Lecture League being prosecuted after interrupting a service at a German church in London, a workman falling foul of a tribunal for deliberately slacking in order to get dismissed from his job, a London publican being fined for allowing too much light to escape from his establishment, and an inquest hearing of a suicide of a Russian dancer after his wife runs off with a fellow dancer with whom she had been living and bore a child before her marriage which makes you wonder what possessed her to marry the subject of the inquest.
