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.

There's going to be a bit of a break in postings from me over the next couple of weeks or so. I shall be attending to some (pleasant) family business that will keep me away from the Internet, because this stuff is all posted from a desktop PC. I will try to drop by if I get the chance to borrow a computer, but of course the comments and the archives will remain open.
