The Express reports that
the Coalition our imposed 'mish-mash of a government have agreed in Cabinet to have the Lib Dem policy put into law as soon as possible to bring Britain into line with human rights rulings from European judges.
It is still the belief of this blog that those who spurn the society in which they live have no right to the benefits of that society. Most criminals will have to have offended a great many times before they are given a prison sentence. Under Ken Clarke's policy with more community-based sentencing, by the time criminals actually receive a custodial sentence they will have proven ‘beyond all reasonable doubt’ that they are not going to respect the laws government pass any way – so why should they have any input at all in the making of those laws. Clegg wants us to be brought into line with the rest of the EU, at the expense of what the British people think and how offended most of the UK electorate will be at this ridiculous suggestion – so no change their then.
So much for Call Me Dave's mantra of 'In Europe but not run by Europe'. Perhaps this should be amended to read 'In Europe but run by the LibDems on behalf of Europe'!
