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.

3 WISE MONKEYS OF HMCTS

For those who have followed my weekly report on HMCTS communications with interested parties on the scheme for "flexible working" there is still no comment on what seems to be the only question concerning magistrates.  Perhaps HMCTS is following the policy of deaf ears and blind eyes to justify dumb mouths. Question is copied below. Website is here.

Have you secured sufficient numbers of magistrates to the proposed rota for extended hours? Similarly have you DJs in place. If to my first question the answer is "no" will you attempt to use DJs more often? Have you sufficient of them for your proposed needs? Do you have a division of sittings in mind for JPs and DJs?
