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.

Past It?

John Sadik points out, in a letter published in today's 'Times' (no link - paywall) that the Justice Secretary, Kenneth Clarke QC, who appears to be just getting into his stride in his new job, has turned 70 this week, while Mr. Sadik recently had to retire as a magistrate on reaching that same age.
