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.

It is not very often that a Court of Appeal decision is of legal interest to Justices of the Peace although there have been and probably will be occasions when decisions have been of intellectual interest.

Earlier this week  an appeal against a decision to remit the criminal courts charge at Inner London Crown Court  was heard.  The report in Law Society Gazette is available here.
