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.

How twenty fours can encapsulate all that brings derision to politics and politicians but with one exception.  We will never know how many of the 2,001,926 “NO” voters were persuaded by Cameron and Milleband`s  last minute promises of change but already the caveats are set to obfuscate the actuality.  This apparent volte face will live in the minds of these people for a long time.  The phrase perfidious Albion comes to mind.  The only person to emerge with credit from this is Gordon Brown whose rousing speech in Dunfermline this morning shows a man changed beyond all recognition from the weak indecisive misfit who flunked calling an election in 2008 which he could have won.  I`ll be in Glasgow in the near future.  My eyes and ears will be more sensitive than usual.
