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.

My heart gave a little leap the other day when I saw an email from 'e.windsor' - at last, I thought, my knighthood is on its way.

My elation was cut short when I realised that Mr. Windsor is a Bench Chairman, who was writing on a committee matter.

Some other time, perhaps.
