Plate Sin With Gold.....*

The Chief Magistrate, no less, told these druggies that charges against them have been dropped in favour of a really tough Conditional Caution, cooked up by the Police and CPS and administered in private, behind closed doors.

Meanwhile, I dealt with someone today for Class A possession of an amount estimated at five to ten pounds' worth. We fined him £100 (he is on £47 per week benefit) and £50 costs. Oh yes, and a £15 victim surcharge. He now has a criminal record (to be fair, he had one already) and will have £5 per week deducted from his munificent benefit.

* Plate sin with gold,
And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks:
Arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw does pierce it.
