    Interesting case for Rumpole as he defends a facist, Captain Parkin, accused of starting riots. While he does not see eye to eye with his client's views, Rumpole believes in free speech and that is pretty much what the trial ends up being about. Rumpole also takes on a new pupil from India who is very sharp. Parkin wants the maximum sentence to further his cause but Rumple will not hear of it and gets him acquitted. His pupil is welcomed into chambers by all but he decides to move on, much to Rumpole's chagrin, and become a prosecuting barrister.moreless
