Slave labour?

Young, black and prepared to work for nothing? Become a magistrate! The Government needs to remove the hideously "white, middle aged and middle class" image of magistrates by recruiting "more [unpaid] magistrates who [are] younger and from the ethnic minorities".

Is there any evidence that existing magistrates apply the law unfairly? If magistrates are so important to law and order in this country, they should be paid for their services.
