Scott-free

The Privy Councillor,
Party Leader,
Member of Parliament
(who nearly became Home Secretary),
Barrister at Law,
MA (Oxon),
Old Etonian
wanted to be free of Norman Scott.

He walked from the Old Bailey
a free man.
His ‘Get Out Of Jail Free’ card
was his pedigree.
The nation thought he’d got away scot-free.
