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.

From The High Court

A judge said this yesterday, in the case of Prince Jefri of Brunei:-

The judge said: “If he is arrested he will have to come before me. It will take an advocate of great skill to persuade me that he should have bail.”

I wish I could say things like that and get away with it.
