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.

Osama Bin Fawkes

As I sit here, a glass of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon to hand, (oops - now it's gone, I see it was Merlot - very good though) my neighbours are putting on what sounds like a re-enactment of the Battle of the Somme.

It would make first-class cover for any of the nasties among us to try out weaponry and explosives without drawing attention to themselves.

How long before some fool tries to ban the whole Guy Fawkes thing?
