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.

Two Toads In A Hole

This case speaks for itself.

Let's wait for the cries of 'unfair'.

A few months ago I was a guest on a BBC radio phone-in. One of the callers was a biker who proudly told us that he had recently kept up a speed of 130 mph for about an hour on public roads. He reacted scathingly to my suggestion that his behaviour was dangerous and anti-social. Given the death rate among bikers, he may solve the problem himself in time. I just hope he doesn't take anyone else with him.
