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.

His Master's Voice

The Sun has given up on Labour. Cohorts of highly paid, highly trained scribblers have addressed themselves to the issues facing Britain and decided, after due deliberation, to withdraw their support from Labour. Or perhaps not. Rupert Murdoch has become very rich and very powerful by backing winners. He has, like many of us, concluded that the Labour horse has only three legs, and his employees have obediently changed their tune.
Fair dos; they have mortgages and families to support; nevertheless I think that the humblest Bangladeshi shit-shoveller shows more integrity in the pursuit of his m├ętier than the average Murdoch hack.
I too am seriously fed up with the government, but at least it's my opinion, and nobody has paid me to express it.
