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.

Hell Hath No Fury........

The resignation of a Cabinet Minister today is another repetition of a truth that has been known for many centuries: if you trade in your partner for someone younger or more attractive, just make sure that your cupboard is quite devoid of skeletons.
The Greeks (and above all Shakespeare) would recognise this situation without the slightest surprise.

I have nothing to say about the case, as we can leave the last word to a jury.
