Tough On Crime, Tough On The Victims of Crime
Was it not one of Nu Liebour's mantras, "Tough on Crime, Tough on the Causes of Crime"? (Although not if committed by government ministers, obviously. Or their close friends and tennis partners)
And yet it seems that murderers are out within just 10 years!
And the Sentencing Committee now thinks that we should let kids with knives off with a Hail Mary!
Meanwhile Slippery Jack Straw can enjoy his new Palace...experienced magistrates resign..and plod hands out goodie bags to drunks.
UPDATE : Surprise Surprise - suspended sentences and community orders failing dismally.
