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.

At my last motoring court I had two matters confirmed.  To my surprise not all comprehensive car insurance policies offer no cost  3rd party cover as an automatic “extra” when driving other vehicles not on loan or hire.  As the specialist prosecutor said to me, “That is a privilege often offered to “older”  drivers...... with respect your worship”.  The other matter was one of law.  A driver disqualified from driving in this country cannot obtain a license from another E.U. state and expect to be legal in the U.K.  On that latter point some months ago a CPS prosecutor was unable to give a definitive reply when faced with that defence against driving whilst disqualified and the case was adjourned.
