A fair trial

There is an episode of Blackadder 4 where Blackadder is on trial for killing a pigeon. At one stage in the trial the court decides to prosecute the defence lawyer, George, for turning up and wasting the court’s time. Sounds ludicrous doesn’t it. The scene is a stroke of comic genius, that a court can be so biased against the defendant that it is offended by the idea that anyone should defend him.

I don’t think that Javid Houtan Kian is finding much humour in the scenario.
