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.

The denial of legal aid in many criminal cases as a result of deliberate government intention is a blot on the justice landscape for which many will never forgive the Tories.  It is therefore pleasing to see even occasionally this atrocious policy being found to be beyond the pale.  A report in the Law Society Gazette is worth a glance.
