Good men and true

AGAIN Britain and its one-sided justice system must be the laughing stock of the judicial world and a haven for the criminal fraternity.

Especially in the case of a gangster saved from deportation by a panel of luvvies.

Their concern? That his extradition would breach his human rights.

Mainly it would exclude him from his mummy and daddy’s affection and attention.

What does this say for the panel who passed this ludicrous lenient judgement?

Ken Clarke and his office wish to free prisoners in early release.

The reason? Mr Clarke is on record as saying that prison is not a deterrent.

But if they are locked up they cannot offend and the lawful element of our country is safe from whatever criminal behaviour there could be about.

We, the British people, need MPs and the judiciary of this frame of mind like holes in our heads.

We import criminals from Europe and Africa, attested by criminal activities reported through newspaper and television reports.

If when caught and convicted the felon, especially if of foreign nationality, immediately falls back on the Human Rights Act, the verdict of “12 good men and true” is a waste of taxpayers’ money.

Future judgement of criminals must be seen by the public to be of equal proportion to both the victim and the criminal, no matter where they are from, with the Human Rights Act not abused to suit the perpetrator, and the term justice meaning just that.
