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.

Mum's The Word

I have thirty-ish friends who went to Oxbridge. One of their pals was recruited by the Security Service while a student, and works there still. He has of course asked all of his friends never to refer to the fact that he works for you-know-who.
On a family occasion the spook was horrified when a friend's slightly flaky mother sounded as if she was about to out him. His panic subsided when he heard what she actually said:- "Say hello to Gavin. He works for - erm - MFI".
