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.

My very last sitting was on motoring and I learned something new.  Re s.172; most provincial police forces follow up a guilty on that charge with pursuit of the substantive matter which initiated the procedure.  That is excluding the country`s largest police force;  The Metropolitan Police.  Don`t ask me why but the motto is that we learn something new every sitting; even the very last.....ever!
