Is it normal for reporters to sit through court sessions for petty driving offences held by the Magistrate's Court? What a weird thing to do. 

Jason Roberts works as a freelance reporter, and sells 'newsworthy' reports to both 3FM and Manx Radio. 

Presumably he sits through a lot of mundane crap, which no-one is interested in, but occasionally, he'll pick up a little gem like this!

So what does he do for an income if he sits through court all week and barely anything or literally nothing interesting happens? It can't pay good money. He must be getting an income from elsewhere. I wonder if he can claim "sitting and waiting" as not working and thereby make a claim as a part-time worker for Employed Person's Allowance.

Well, whoever does the court reports for IOM Newspapers is semi-literate. Something I've noticed for years, ever since Wotsherface shuffled off.
