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.

They Really Don't Get It

With the papers full of reaction to the G20 policing issue and various other embarrassing foul-ups, some cretin in the Home Office has decided to throw away many thousands of our pounds on putting a half-page ad for this in my Sunday paper.
The 'pledge' is meaningless PR nonsense, the cost unjustifiable, and the timing rotten.
Good job lads.
