Prison

Three people have been sent to prison.

One, a lying, thieving MP has been sent to prison for 18 months.

He systematically stole from the taxpayer, then tried to argue that he was above the law. Did he deserve what he got?

He will probably spend his time in an open prison and be released fairly early.

His crime is theft and lying, he never physically hurt any one. He is no spring chicken and has never been in trouble before so his time in prison will not be pleasant.

So yes, I think that was the right result.

Another, a student who thinks we all owe him, has been jailed for 2 years 8 months for throwing a fire extinguisher off a building.

He was part of the student riots that did a lot of damage and his actions could have caused injury or death. He shit all over the right to protest. Did he deserve what he got?

He never actually harmed anyone either and his time will not be spent in an open prison. He came forward and admitted his crime. It looks to me like he's been made an example of.

32 months in prison? No, I think that was a bit harsh.

And then there's this woman.

She stabbed a man in the back and got ten months youth custody.

Paige Thomason who is just 1.52m (5ft) , plunged the knife into the shoulder of Adam Stagg, then told police: ‘I would say I’m sorry, but I’m not.’

Recorder Paul Derbyshire told her: ‘I accept some violence had been used to you but I cannot get away from the fact that you came outside with a large kitchen knife you embedded six or seven inches in his back, puncturing a lung and nearly killing him.’

Did she get what she deserved? 10 months youth custody on a charge of unlawful wounding after stabbing someone in the back, puncturing his lung and showing no remorse.

No. She should have been charged with attempted murder and sent to prison for a long time.

Justice works in mysterious ways.
