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.

Back To the Sixties

I left school and went to University in the 1960s.
We were, at the fag-end of the Macmillan Government, entertained by the Profumo scandal, involving a Minister, alleged spies, tarts, and a group of peripherally-involved odd'uns. Inevitably the little people copped the full force of the law while the posh people got off with a bit of embarrassment and a life of good works (that was bearable since there was enough family cash to ease the pain). Stephen Ward and one of the girls went inside.
That's why I have a sense of deja vu about this. Or am I being cynical?
