Richard Bristow J.P. died earlier this month only a short time after he was retired by the MOJ from his position as a magistrate.  I write of him today because he was the originator of the Magistrate`s Blog about fifteen years ago.  His observations provided a runyonesque view of the world from the lay bench in West London. Indeed he was, unknowingly, an inspiration for me when I began this blog at its original site in 2009. Rest in peace.
