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.

Classic Silly Season Non-Story

Here's a cracker from the Daily Mail :-Judge Story.
It's got the lot - synthetic indignation, the crime of the month (knives) the how-dare-he judge. Best of all is Lyn Costello, the 'co-founder of the Mother's (sic) Against Murder and Aggression campaign group' (is there a Mothers For murder and aggression group? If not, why not?) who said that the judge should lose his job.
"Whatever the case, clearly the public don't want him carrying it."

No, dear. Not the public. Just you.
