* Australians are notoriously friendly chaps but there are limits. Matthew McLaughlin, a magistrate in Queensland, was hearing evidence in court from Thomas John Collins, and objected to Collins calling him "mate". Sorry, he said, you can't call me that. You must call me "Sir" or "Your Honour". There was a pause. "Okay mate," said Collins. McLaughlin, incensed by this lese majeste, sent him to the cells – and is now being criticised for getting too big for his boots. "Some of these magistrates see themselves as Lord of the Fiefdom", said councillor Paul Tully. "I say to every magistrate, 'Get off your high horse, mate, and show some tolerance.'" Call me a dreamer but I can't see this approach working at the Old Bailey.
