Abstract An unfortunate feature of modern litigation is its expense; one consequence of this is an increasingly large number of litigants in banking litigation who appear for themselves. Frequently, a litigant in person will mount an "argument" (derived goodness knows where) involving some bizarre and unsustainable reasoning. Making such an argument detracts from otherwise valid claims in defence of the lender's action, and may submerge them completely. This article examines "arguments" which the litigant in person should not advance
