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.

For umpteen years governments of all shades have made it a priority to come down hard on knife crime.  As sure as night follows day the current occupants of Petty France have published thousands of statistics on knife crime,  the perpetrators and the consequent disposals.  Crime involving the actual use of a knife or bladed instrument is not covered by  figures published today: they refer only to possession.  I offer no opinions but for number crunchers the tables are available here.
