Musings and Snippets from a recently retired JP. I served for 31 years, mostly in west London. I was Chairman of my Bench for some years, and a member of the National Bench Chairmen's Forum All cases are based on real ones, but anonymised and composited. All opinions are those of one or more individuals. JPs swear to enforce the law of the land, whether or not they approve of it. Nothing on here constitutes legal advice.

For the last month or so we have been receiving an increasing flow of automated comments on the blog, written in strangely stilted English, and attempting to point us to sites advertising all kinds of rubbish. We have already had to introduce pre-moderation of comments, but having to check the blog constantly and then delete up to a couple of dozen fake posts takes too much time, and that means that some kind of verification is going to be needed. That will inconvenience all genuine commenters, but that is, I am afraid, the way of the online world. Sorry.
