R v G; R v J [2009] UKHL 13; [2009] WLR (D) 80

To rely on the defence in s 58(3) of the Terrorism Act 2000 a defendant had to show an objectively ‘reasonable excuse’ for his action or possession and a ruling that neither a desire to ‘wind up’ prison officers nor mental illness could amount to a reasonable excuse had been correct.”
