Then which kitchen you want to be in?
Either you tell the first, of whom you are convinced he's telling the 
truth, that the laws tell you to consider he's not.
Or you tell the opponents of the second one, of whom the whole table 
knows he's lying, that the laws tell you that you must trust what he says.
Two kitchens I don't want to be in.
