  1. Being an incorrigible rogue was a crime at the time the icorrigible rogues were flipping their residences, etc.
    Can a prosecution be mounted after a law has been abolished but where the offence was clearly an offence at the time?
    One for m’Lud.

  2. “Now what are we going to prosecute Tim Yeo for?”
    Behaving in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace should do. Walking around with that face provides ample evidence.
