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.

Another One Bites The Dust

It is reported that Gordon Brown has dumped the absurd "Respect" agenda, just another of the initiatives that emanated from the No. 10 sofa in the Blair years.
Let's not mince words - the idea was bollocks when Blair thought it up and it was bollocks when talented and hard-working civil servants tried to make some sense of it. Good riddance.
This is the Respect website. How much good do you think it has done? I hope someone makes a Freedom of Information request to find out what this nonsense has cost.
