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.

What Happened To The Old Certainties?

I am confused. What is happening to me? First, as kindly pointed out by Anonymous John, the Mail has run a reasoned and thoughtful piece about the Venables affair by Suzanne Moore, and then I open my Sunday Times to find that I agree with the drift of a column by, of all people, Jeremy Clarkson.
I think I may need a holiday.
