      I heard to-day that he was inspecting the decor in Cardiff Jail. On remand. I don't know what this is all about. The last story about the Vet was when he was flying his Cub around the world, got into trouble over Japan and landed the a/c on a public highway. That caused a stink ! That was a few years back.

        Wasn't aware that he was on hunger strike. Without studying or remembering the complete case or cases, he always seemed to me to be a 'Don Quixote' character (meant as a compliment not a detraction!).

            Newforest this EX Vet is an utter disgrace. I attach aBBC account of some of his activities. Going back to the time he was a vet this is just the tip of the iceberg in my neck of the woods.

              Thanks Paul for that brief summary and enlightenment. I believe there were also problems in Jersey.

                  I remember being accosted by him at a PFA Rally, he wanted support for a bee in his bonnet. A most obnoxious man.
