It has become a matter of principle for Albert Haddock to not let archaic laws and bye-laws dictate the way he lives his life. Whenever he takes on the injustices of life he normally ends up having to defend his stance in a court of law. A court that is frequently presided over by the increasingly amused Mr Justice Swallow and Mr Haddock's long-suffering adversary Sir Joshua Hoot QC.
