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 Monster Raving Loony Party regularly offered voters many improbable benefits if the electorate suddenly became part of that Mad Hatter`s Tea Party.  The Lib Dems from election to election propagate a somewhat similar line. But today they offer a change so frighteningly simple that no previous political party has had the cohones to dare even suggest such an innovation; the legalisation and regulation of cannabis. Of course it will not happen this time but as an unexplored way of raising billions of pounds some chancellor sometime will persuade a prime minister and his/her colleagues that this would be a no brainer.
