More Budget Thoughts
There is still some residual resistance to change among magistrates, although the message that there is no way back is beginning to sink in, even to the diehards who would like to turn the clock back. The bush telegraph tells me that further closures of courtrooms and courthouses are a certainty, and that the workload will be allowed and encouraged to trickle downwards, allowing for further economies.
Nothing is sacred, nothing is truly ring fenced. At this rate I fear for the future supply of biscuits; if they go, we are all in trouble.
