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.

A Bit of Inside Track
I was chatting to a couple of senior-ish HMCS people the other day (no names, no P45s) and I asked for an unofficial steer as to how the London spending review was going. After a conspiratorial glance round the room, they told me that the 'hold' button has been discreetly pressed, given the approach of a General Election and the desperate need to avoid upsetting the punters. So I look forward to a few helpings of fudge, then a bit of 'consultation' (that will be ignored) then who knows what. With a bit of luck, that will take me at least halfway to my retirement from the Bench.
