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.

Jack it in?

This report is a sad epitaph on the blogging career of 'Nightjack'. We exchanged views at times, and on the whole I disagreed with his take on the justice system, but it's a shame that things have come to this. Nobody can blame him for putting his mortgage and career before the ephemeral world of blogging, but it's a particular shame that the Orwell prize appears to have been his undoing.
