More Hot Air From Lord Chief Justice
With brilliant timing the Lord Chief Justice declares that burglars should get stiff jail sentences because breaking into peoples' homes is so dreadful it deserves serious prison time.
This follows hot on the heels of the death of some poor old bloke dragged out of his home by a fucking bailiff to go to a cash point to pay a motoring fine, and the sentencing to life in prison ( or 12 years ) for a murder committed while the killer was on a 6 months supervision order for burglary.
You could hardly make it up and be believed.
The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge ( more disbelief!) was pontificating and adding to global warming whilst throwing out appeals against the harshness of their sentences by a clutch of burglars. These cunts were handed down sentences which they thought were unfair, including 2 years and 12 months. With the usual practice of only serving half that plus even less to help with prison over-crowding caused by not building enough capacity ( thanks Gordon!) , these sentences are derisory. Who the fuck gave the scrotes leave to appeal them, and who the fuckety fuck pays for all the m'learned friends getting fat on the back of it?
This shower of shit masquerading as a government got in claiming that they would be Tough On Crime and Tough On The Causes Of Crime. Like the rest of their promises, not worth the paper it was written on, as Labour Manifestos are not believable in law, or whatever the phrase was when Gordon's promised referendum was put before a judge.
UPDATE - What we really need is not more fucking hot air and hand wringing from the judges or from the likes of Slippery Jack or Jacqui Boots, but a decent burglary (or three) with added violence directly affecting the Elite of The Righteous. Then we'd have some action, double fucking quick. Who would you most like to hear had been the victim(s)?
