Master being Jailed and Flailed – is desperate to be Bailed

The Lord Mayor has laid down certain conditions .....

The Master has been called by the Lord Mayor to Mansion House on 19 June and is concerned that he may be arrested!!

The Lord Mayor has asked the Livery to raise funds for the British Red Cross.  The Master’s  burden is to be charged with a felony by the Lord Mayor, "arrested" by the City of London Police, taken in a special London Bus to the Tower of London and be jailed until bail of at least £1000 is paid!   On 19 June he will be seen outside Mansion House at 1150am for mug shots, and will arrive at the Tower at 1210pm. Subject to being Bailed by our prior donations, he hopes he will be freed at  2pm.

In the hope of getting enough Bail he has set up the web site       . To encourage donations, Berry Bros & Rudd have donated a bottle of excellent 2000 vintage Charles Heidsieck, to be awarded to one of the donors !
