    Are you sure it's a summons to court for jury service.

    Not for speeding....or street racing?

    Bugger for the World Cup tho....you'll just have to manipulate the verdicts around the games.

    If you are selected there is no way you can generally get out of it, even if you stand to lose a fair amount of money work wise they give you about £50 a day plus a tenner for food when you then get selected for a case if you know some involved with the case then you get out of that case, i did it last year for a case against a pervert who liked to take sneaky pics of wimmin having a wee i ended up as foreman it was nice to say guilty FIVE times and there wasn't any nice women in the pictures
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    I got notice that I could be called any time in the next year. Work isn't a problem, they pay your employer a fee for you being away, you get paid normally, and if you're going to be away for a long time then they'll actualyl pay your employer to get in replacement staff.
