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.

Wasteful & Callous (2)

I wrote this a few days ago. I have now had an email suggesting that we have the power to issue a witness summons to the chief executive of the NHS Trust on the grounds that he could give evidence about the problem. If he refuses to turn up he could be in contempt. Interesting.
