Anti-Social Behavior Orders, commonly known as ASBOs, are the New Labour government's pride and joy. A child who plays soccer or even loiters in an unfriendly street can, on the complaint of neighbors, have an ASBO slapped on him. If he offends again, he'll be found in breach of his ASBD and thrown in jail without a trial. All this, of course, raises the wrath of everyone's favorite barrister, Horace Rumpole, when he is called upon to defend a Timson child who has earned an ASBO for playing soccer on a posh street.Rumpole quickly discovers that this apparently trivial case has links with the murder of a prostitute in a London flat and some nefarious dealings in a government department. As Rumpole tries to get to the bottom of it all, his fellow barristers in chambers highlight the ridiculousness of ASBOs by citing Rumpole for bringing food and his beloved wine into his room, and, of all things, for causing global warming by lighting small cigars.
