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.

Comments to this blog are always welcome, and are moderated with a light touch. However I have just had to hold a couple that go into detail of someone's case. Unfortunately the blog is not the place to go over old individual cases. Sorry.

i would have posted an ironic comment here, but i'm not nearly intelligent enough ... instead, i'll settle for thanking you for writing this blog - it's very much appreciated and enjoyed :)ReplyDelete
All of us have to be wary of how and what we record.ReplyDelete
It leads me to muse...........
I fear though, in the UK, the forces of repression have always had the upper hand, the recent ham-fisted attempts to curb what was once [just about at any rate] a free press are evidence of a increasingly authoritarian state. A state way out of control, which deems itself to be unimpeachable and grows ever more corrupt - its cause, the wielding of power without the restorative of democratic redress and moral and legal accountability. It's what the ECHR-ECJ is all about, empowerment of the political claque and it emboldens our authorities to do as they please.
