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.

The blog is written by a team, who may or may not be JPs, but all of whom are interested in the Magistrates' Courts.

Apocrypha (17)

I have a friend who, while a Brit (well, a Scot, actually) has made a successful career with an American company.

We were discussing the NHS the other day, and he came out with a lovely phrase:-

"The trouble with the NHS is that it has too many people hiding in the weeds".

I may well borrow that phrase when the occasion arises.
