Let him off….use the Fitzsimons Principle

Some poor bugger accidently set fire to some bush at Mangawhai when he was letting off fireworks on Saturday night.

He is going to be charged, and billed about $20,000 for his effort which by all accounts was an accident.

The man is very remorseful and very upset about the accident.

Sooooo….it appears he should have been arrogant and unrepentant in order to avoid prosecution. that is after all the Fitzsimons Principle…..Do as I say not as I do.

It seems they also have a total fire ban up there as well…..
