Good to read a Judge who talks common sense;

Sentencing laws that meant a £12,000 benefits cheat could  not be sent to jail have been condemned as pathetic by a judge. Beverley Lunt said it was wrong that the maximum term she could impose on Darren Blagboro was 12 weeks behind bars. And because the double-glazing salesman had admitted fraud, she had to reduce that sentence and, in the end, suspend it completely.‘Some may think it’s pathetic and that includes me,’ said Judge Lunt.

The killer detail is this. This Welfare fraudster is already serving a suspended prison sentence on a different matter.

As you can see, we do not take sentencing seriously. Then again, there is the Human Rights Industry to ensure that it stays that way!

One thought on “THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE SENTENCING..

  1. If serious drug dealers are now to be let off with a slap on the wrist. What chance do mere benefit fraudsters have of being banged up? I guess not very much. It sort of begs the question just what the hell do you have to do these days to actually be guaranteed being jailed int he UK…Regicide perhaps?
