thought for the day
we must get away from this notion that criminals need to be punished. why should they be punished? :slno: this is an outmoded method of dealing with a person who committed a crime. they should be held in custody, preferably for a short a time as possible, so it doesn't cost too much and if when they are released, they then commit a further crime, well even then they still don't deserve punishment, instead they should be welcomed back into custody, preferably for an even shorter time than previously, so it costs even less than the first time. when released back onto the poor old UK public again, if they commit a further crime again, well - it's to be expected. the UK have a 'REVOLVING DOOR JUSTICE system,' it's not that good at actually providing justice for the UK public, but it is cheap and that's what counts :slsad:

general election on 8 June

Post by falkor » Tue Apr 18, 2017 5:27 pm

The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she wants to hold a general election on 8 June - three years earlier than scheduled.

"The average of five opinion polls published in April puts the Conservatives on a little under 43% compared to a little over 25% for Labour - a lead of more than 17%. This would translate into a comfortable win for Mrs May's party at an election if that's how people voted.
