The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

All in the Name of Art

I went to the excellent Turner Whistler and Monet exhibition at the Tate today. My mind is still boggling after my visit to the Gents. There is a notice screwed to the wall to the effect that an anonymous well-wisher has sponsored all of the paper used in that facility.

"er - I'd like to sponsor you a bit" "certainly sir, what do you fancy? Buy us a nice painting, build us a new extension, or perhaps you could sponsor the restaurant" No, I want to sponsor the toilet rolls"

Never look a gift horse in the mouth, those chaps at the Tate. Bog rolls it is.

No wonder the bloke was anonymous.
