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.

I shouldn`t be writing this; I should be in a courtroom listening to a trial. It is, however, the same old story. A CPS agent has received no file but has managed to obtain some papers from the officer in the case; a complainant has turned up and decides that she is not willing to give evidence and after a short confrontation with said agent leaves the building. dismissed! We all leave at 11.00a.m.
