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.

Let's See

The latest figures on the amount of crime are discussed here.

I have reservations about crime figures, as I said five years ago.

Let's see what tomorrow's press makes of the report. Will the Mail and Sun and the rest headline the story, or bury it down column on page 46?

I think I know the answer. News that doesn't fit the paper's or the proprietor's agenda tends to disappear.

Let's hope for a nice surprise in the morning.
