I expect to find myself a similar situation some time soon as I have recently de-registered my car. I have no road tax or MOT
however my car is safe and has insurance.

It will either be easier or harder to stand up to the courts up here in Scotland. The reason being that all sheriffs are experienced
lawyers unlike (I hear) magistrates in england.

This could either work for me or against me.

For: They know the difference between common law and commercial law and realise I know my rights. Dismissed
Against: They are zealots here and could just ignore anything I say.

I'm confused at the anti-terrorist's method of standing in court. He says to ask if the recorder is on implying that
proceedings are recorded. I have a journalist friend who is a court reporter and he has confirmed that proceedings
in court at this level are not recorded. The only record is that of the sheriff/magistrate.

I agree, no joinder= dismissed.
