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.

Poisson D'Avril

Some heartless soul arrived early at court today and fixed spoof HMCS notices to the loo doors and the coffee machine, to the effect that there would henceforth be charges to use the toilets, for hot drinks, and to park in the justices' car park.

A handful of colleagues were fooled for a few minutes, but the commonest reaction was along the lines of :"I wouldn't put it past the buggers".
