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 trial was held in Edinburgh so coverage in England has been scant but its history and participants go back some years.  I commented in 2011 on a by product of the original case which led to the current proceedings just concluded.  The judge`s comments will be regarded carefully by lawyers north and south of the border.
