A prisoner release scheme that has seen almost 80,000 criminals rel let out early will be scrapped next monthWith all those criminals out and about in society, the state can set to work locking up opponents of their ideological flights of fancy instead.
The emergency measure was introduced three years ago to ease overcrowding but has seen offenders let out up to 18 days early go on to commit more than 1,500 new crimes.
A former pub landlord yesterday became the first person to be jailed in connection with the smoking ban.There is the usual rent-a-quote from ASH, again confusing compliance, at pain of fines and imprisonment, with popularity of the blanket ban as opposed to other solutions to a minor problem. But then, lies and deception are what she gets paid for, I suppose.
Nick Hogan, 43, was sentenced to six months in prison for refusing to pay a fine imposed for flouting the legislation.
Interestingly, if Nick Hogan had been a Labour Lord, he may have fared better. He could have killed someone, only received a 12 week sentence, and would have been released in a couple of weeks time.
It's also interesting to note the majority of comments appended to the Mail article slating the smoking ban. How is that 'hugely popular' legislation working for ya, Labour?
The stench of this hideous administration becomes more rancid and overpowering by the day.
When's the election?
