If, upon reading the title, you thought to yourself "aha, a post on the report and recommendations of magistrates" then you are who we are addressing and you need to read this.
From time to time, long time and careful readers of the blog know that even Rumpole takes a break from his relentless pursuit of justice. And as the August doldrums settles upon us, like a warm suit jacket on a hot summer day- unwelcome, unwarranted and unnecessary anywhere but the court rooms of the REGJB for gentlemen lawyers, you may notice that the frequency of the award winning posts you have come to love has diminished.
Fear not dear reader. We have guest Blogger Scott Saul to cover music, movies, and general culture. The Captain in on the prowl for judicial election snafus, and Millennial Me is hopping in and out of Ubers, her trusty cell phone in her hands, as she remains connected to the internet at all times- a particular scourge of her generation.
All is well. Hot. Muggy. But well. As is Rumpole, in parts unknown, but lets just say we left dear England a few weeks ago for a land and sea voyage to our former penal colony...mate.
From the free world to those who are still in occupied territories....courage!
