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.

With the closure programme of magistrates` courts not yet complete the marginal cases are now the subject of bitter dispute with HMCTS using all arguments available whether viable or not to justify closures and the running down of courts` listings. The recriminations being bandied about at Gloucester Magistrates` Courts are typical. This is not the first such case and will not be the last.
