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.

FAKE NEWS, RULES AND REALITY
The disaster that was Chris Grayling`s time as Justice Secretary was predicted by those, who unlike him, realised what the reality of his changes would mean. But the weasels in Petty France and their thousands of column inches of utter garbage smothered discontent until a lobby fodder of M.P.s forced changes. The ventriloquist`s dummy at the MOJ had this tweeted reply to a recent parliamentary question on the Criminal Courts Charge imposed by Grayling who of course achieved promotion for his efforts.
When the manipulators are out of their depth and their reliance on so called fake news itself becomes discredited only those actively seeking the truth will be able to discriminate between what "they" tell us and the reality. That will be a sad time for us all.
