Jailed for Calling Magistrate 'Mate'

"Good on the Judge! Respect for authority is one of the main reasons for the decline in standards in modern life. Everyone thinks they are equal to anyone else, when they are not. Criminals have offended not only against the Law, but against all those who try to keep it, who realise that rules matter in a civilised society. To call the magistrate 'Your Honour' or 'Sir' is not addressing the man, but honouring the Law. Only Morons think otherwise." ~ Pedro, Gt. Manchester, 3 November 2010, 4:23pm
