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.

A Bit Close to Home

Shakespeare's take on the Bench:-

Next, the Justice,
In fair round belly, with good capon lined.
With eyes severe, and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances,
And so he plays his part.

Hmmm- he must have seen me coming.

While we are mentioning the Bard, I liked this from today's Telegraph:

If you provided an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters I doubt they would produce the works of Shakespeare. But they might well come up with the word "Kyrgyzstan".
