Synopsis

In an attempt to raise a dormant spirit lying somewhere between Fred Dibnah and Bonnie and Clyde, Dan Kieran has been on a journey to discover why life in modern Britain is so absurd and unfulfilling, and he has realized that everything comes down to just one thing: British law. And these very laws are becoming as eccentric as moustache clubs, shin-kicking championships, and even, God bless her, the Queen. And on his travels, Dan finds he's not alone, for there are multitudes of people battling against the tedium. And so begins a satirical, fun-packed crime spree as Dan joins a group of protestors (five of whom were arrested for eating cakes in Parliament Square), spends the night on the roof of a bus station in Derby, befriends a group of pensioners who were forced to let off stink bombs in a court of law, finds King Arthur alive and well up a tree in Newbury, and discovers how afraid we should really be of terrorism. All types of people will lower themselves to desperate behavior for celebrity status, but no one has ever deliberately become a criminal to point out how authoritarian the British Government has become. Well, not for a while, anyway. Packed with many more hilarious stories, fascinating facts and a sprinkling of sage advice from the likes of Winston Churchill, Admiral Nelson, George Orwell, and William Blake, I Fought the Law is a patriotic celebration of the British spirit - and a call to arms for all those for whom enough is enough!
