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.

By The Way

We didn't get a gong at the New Statesman New Media Awards the other day, but we did have a nice evening out at the Serpentine Gallery, with champagne and excellent canapes provided by the magazine. David Miliband gave out the prizes and Peter Tatchell made a bit of a speech along with Geoffrey Robinson, the very rich owner of the mag. I was tempted to tell Peter Tatchell that he looked different without handcuffs on, but I decided that he might take it the wrong way.
