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.

It Must be True - I Read It in The Times

Yesterday's 'Times' Travel section has a piece about the big Rungis food market that serves Paris. A picture caption claims that the market supplies '1.7 million tonnes of products every day'. Paris has a population of 11 million, more or less, and I am sure that people from the whole Ile de France travel to Rungis to choose from its superb selection of fresh produce. Nevertheless, that's over 100kg per person per day on a generous estimate. I do hope the Parisians don't start getting fat.
