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.

Literally Shocking

I personally enjoyed the recently published list of the ten most irritating expressions at this moment in time. With all due respect, the number of people who use phrases that they shouldn’t of is a nightmare – the TV and papers are full of them 24/7. At the end of the day, it’s not rocket science to speak decent English. I try my best but does that make me fairly unique? Absolutely.
