Now that I am retired having been many years a magistrate with a long awareness of the declining freedoms enjoyed by the ordinary citizen and a corresponding fear of the big brother state`s ever increasing encroachment on civil liberties I hope that my personal observations within these general parameters will be of interest to those with an open mind. Having been blogging with this title for many years against the rules of the Ministry of Justice my new found freedom should allow me to be less inhibited in these observations.

  1. Hi,

    This is not a comment, but an enquiry: I'm try to find a record of a particular appointment to the Commission of the Peace, in Dublin, between 1913 and 1915. The National Archives in Dublin hasn't been able to help ( Chief Secretary for Ireland's Office) and I've also struggled to make progress with the website of the National Archives UK.

    Do you know of, or could you possibly direct me to, an histoirical record of person who haveheld the position of Justice of the Peace?

    Thanks in anticipation and thank you for doing the blog.

    Kind regards
