Jan. 3, 2000. Bavidge has still failed to reply to my letter to him copied below.
The Clerk To The Justices, 16A The Lyons,
The Villa, Hetton-le-Hole,
Dairy Lane, Tyne-Wear,
Houghton-le-Spring, DH5 OHT.
December 8th 1998
Re: Case No. 0333900.
Today I received your reply which is dated 7th December, to my two letters I sent to you dated 26th November and 1st December 1998.
In the light of your reply I now advise you that I require to lodge an appeal at both my conviction and sentence under the above case number.
I wish also to state my concern that you have written that you do not consider there are grounds for a mis-trial. I am sure that as very questionable acts are now involved which took place twelve years ago at the Houghton-le-Spring Magistrates Court, where you were yourself involved, then I feel in the circumstances that you are not the person to have given the matter of a possible mis-trial such consideration.
I would also ask here if you can verify or deny that you would normally have prior knowledge if a magistrate sitting on the bench was so qualified as to the level of stipendairy magistrate? Can you also verify whether you consider it normal practice for a magistrate, and I refer here to Mr. William Moseley, to remain seated on the bench along with another magistrate, though he later alleged that he had stood down from the hearing before him by reason that he was well acquainted with the accused who stood before him? Would you agree that a magistrate normally has some days or at least hours advance knowledge of the identity of those whose are to appear before him while sitting as a magistrate? Can you also confirm that Mr. William Moseley still presently sits as a magistrate at the Houghton-le-Spring Magistrates Court?

Present date January 3, 200. No reply has yet been received from Mr. Bavidge to this letter which was delivered by hand to his office. His office did find the time however to issue me with a new summons dated 28 April to appear at Houghton-le-Spring Magistrates Court on June 3. Strangely it did not arrive until Friday 7th May 1999. The new allegations have been fabricated and I believe that there are grounds to link the Chief Constable of Northumbria, J.C. Strachan with it. His predecessor, presently Deputy London Metropolitan Commissioner Stevens is understood to be a mason as is Chief Constable Strachan.
