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 COURTS CHARGE AND MAGISTRATES AT THE COAL FACE
It is not before time that J.P.s, fed up with the kowtowing "In the Thick of it" or "Yes Minister" approach to government followed decade upon decade by the "waiting for my gong" cardboard cut outs of the Magistrates Association, decided at the coal face to make their point of view heard. I salute them. Justices` Clerks will admonish their behaviour at their peril.
