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 TRUE NATURE OF POLITICS
The truth is that the MOJ and its cousin HMCTS don`t know where to turn or in what direction they should set their compasses. Money has been squeezed from their and the Home Office`s budgets until there`s not much juice left for them to squeeze. When awful events occur as happened yesterday politicians are vying to make clear their support for our wonderful police and emergency services whilst simultaneously conspiring in their being forced to run on empty. Such is the true nature of politics.
