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.

There is an old story that the ultra conservative Presbyterian ladies of Edinburgh’s Morningside district used to describe sex as that in which the coalman delivered coal.  Those were the days when the British middle classes kept sex in the closet.  High divorce and teenage pregnancy rates are a clear indication that there is nothing about sex that cannot be discussed in almost any level of communication.  However when discussion at the trial of Max Clifford in the Old Bailey centred on   the miniscule dimensions of his male member many members of the jury could  not control their laughter and so they were all sent out to recover their composure.     I haven`t yet seen any cartoons on this topic which seems made to measure for some sort of satirical observation.  Perhaps that would  still be a step too far........
