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.

Better Late Than Never

The old,sick, prisoner Ronnie Biggs is apparently to be released.
He was too dangerous to be released a few weeks ago, but now Jack Straw, in his infinite mercy and wisdom, is prepared to let Biggs die in (relative) freedom - well, as free as any man can be on his deathbed, that is.
Die easy, old man. You are beyond the reach of British Justice, and now face, if you believe in that stuff, a higher tribunal.
Sleep well Mr.Straw.
