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.

Strasbourg Scores From The Spot

A pub landlady has just had a good result about her use of a foreign satellite feed of football matches.

This decision is of course a poke in the eye for the Murdoch empire - coincidentally there is a tear jerking piece in today's Times (prop.R.Murdoch et al) about the blow to the rights of media millionaires.

I don't follow football, but I won't lose too much sleep if the ludicrous economics of the game suffer a dousing in cold reality.

Only Bentley and Lamborghini salesmen have very much to fear.
