Defending yourself: Question

I cant find information on how to conduct the cross examination of the defence if I am defending myself.

Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks to all the community for your help so far.

It's difficult to answer that because each case has individual merits.

In practical terms your comments when cross examining must be questions. If you ramble you will be stopped. The court does not like that.
Have a look here as I have just a few minutes ago answered the same question...

Please ensure you do not divulge any information which could identify you as Border Force will use your posts here as evidence against you in court.

Re: Defending yourself: Question

To clarrify, Im interested in the part where the prosecution questions the defendant (in this case me).

How do I cross examine myself?

Should I just make a statement?

Would this have to be different to my final statement?

Re: Defending yourself: Question

You will be cross examined by the Home office barrister. Before the bench makes its decision you can make a statement to the court.. See also this post http://n2d.boardhost.com/viewtopic.php?pid=1219#p1219
