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.

Metropolitan Flics?

The Metropolitan Police appear, as I write, to be facilitating the pathetic Luddite fuel protesters in their attempt to bring West London to a standstill in order to blackmail the Government into giving them a subsidy. Those who deliberately choose to drive in a manner intended to inconvenience other road users are at the very least committing the offence of Driving Without Due Consideration.
What's up with the Met? Have they been taking lessons from the craven French authorities?
