Quote of the Day (Joe Orton, on Law, “Impartial’ or ‘Rubbish’)

Fay: “I'm innocent till I'm proved guilty. This is a free country. The law is impartial.”

Truscott: “Who's been filling your head with that rubbish?”

Fay: “I can't be had for anything. You've no proof.”

Truscott: “When I make out my report, I shall say you've given me a confession. It could prejudice your case if I have to forge one.”—Joe Orton, Loot (1965)
