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.

News Release!

Her Majesty's Courts' Service has issued an exultant press release, claiming that courts have welcomed the introduction of wi-fi for the benefit of court users. Not on my patch they haven't, since the announcement doesn't cover magistrates' courts, despite the fact that this is where 95% of all criminal cases are dealt with.
We are sucking on the hind tit as ever, down at the sharp end.
