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.

In the retiring room at 9.30a.m. to prepare for an all day trial.  At 9.45a.m. informed that the matter had been dismissed earlier that morning.  Secondary matter listed procedural only and after supping off a few dregs from an other court`s measly table signed out at 11.15a.m.  This is not all that unusual.  Frustration with a capital F does not go half way to describing how my colleagues and I feel.
