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.

Had a case earlier this month where the charge revolved to a great extent around the information held on a mobile phone.  However the local constabulary and the CPS in their wisdom or lack thereof did not provide such evidence.  Once again the hurdle of beyond reasonable doubt allowed a likely offender to walk.  Once again the Scots verdict of not proven described the situation.
