    Jury Service

    Evening all,

    I've been given the call up tomorrow for up to 4 weeks and was just wondering if any of you lot have done it and what to expect etc etc.

    Also, I've seen it's a free for all regarding clothing. Any etiquette I should be following?

    Wear a very posh suit and brandish a copy of The Times. You will be guaranteed not to be selected.

    Here to help

    Selected four times would you believe , a lottery I would never win but that , the last time I served was twenty odd years ago.
    Strangely , I was going to mention the suit thingy but Al beat me to it. I remember folk being rejected for that reason once. I'd decided to leave my work suit at home that day and was selected!
    Been foreman of the jury four times , guess I talk too much!

    If on the other hand you want to serve and p*ss off a defence barrister dress scruffy, brandish The Sun and next day wear the posh suit and wave The Times.
