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.

How Considerate

How thoughtful of Her Majesty to bestow the title Duke of Cambridge on Prince William. I wish I could have been named after a pub, although there is a Bystander near Abingdon. There is also a Bystander Cafe in Brighton, but Brighton is a little too louche for a dignified old gent such as I.

My home town has a Duke of Cambridge, as well as a Prince of Wales, a Kings Head and a Queens Head. That almost makes us family doesn't it?
