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.

Busted Flush

I have it on good authority that a court in Kent today suffered a failure of the water supply to its toilets, forcing the judiciary, staff, lawyers, witnesses and defendants to pop out to the public conveniences when the need arose.

This is a high-minded and serious blog, so I don't want to see any unseemly comments.

Or do I?

(By the way, I have just realised that 95% of the comments that praise the seriousness of the blog go on to give me a bollocking about something I have either written or allowed into the comments).
