A Holloway street trader tried to get away with not paying National Insurance because “business wasn’t very good”.
The man, who traded in Enkel Street, was fined £2 (equivalent of £44 today) at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court.
Magistrate Frank Milton lectured him: “I know the contributions are enormous, but we are all in this together.”
In another case, Mr Milton mourned the Finsbury Park “accident blackspot” that was the junction of Blackstock Road and Ambler Road.
It came as a man was fined for driving without due care at the junction.
