BBC News – Serious criminals to serve two-thirds of jail term in justice shake-up
Yes, definitely a step in the right direction. However, I believe that serious criminals should serve the whole term of their sentence.
What is the point of laying down a punishment that the criminals know is just for show, knowing full well they will not serve the full time.
Sentences should act as a deterrent. And this is definitely a step in the right direction.
BBC News – BBC star salaries: Gary Lineker takes pay cut as Zoe Ball shoots up list
I guess he will really feel the pinch, taking a £400,000 pay cut. And he will still be grabbing over a million.
And for what? Talking about football !!!
And let’s not forget about the money he gets for promoting Walkers crisps.
Should we feel sorry for him ? No way !!!
Linekers salary is just obscene and yet they, the BBC, need to take away the free TV license for the over 75’s
The BBC need a reality check.
Teenagers convicted of terrorism in England and Wales could receive whole-life terms under sentencing reforms described by the government as the most radical in almost 20 years.
We are taught, at a very young age, the difference between right and wrong. We know what is the moral thing to do.
Terrorism is wrong. We all know that.
Therefore it is right that terrorists of any age are punished for their actions.
I truly hope that the government pushes ahead with these changes to suitably punish all terrorists and child killers.
We need to listen to this guy. More so than the voices of the sensationalist media.
The UK could see a second spike in coronavirus cases if young people don’t follow social distancing rules, the health secretary says.
A third of all cases in England last week were people aged between 20 and 29.
Ever since the declaration of the pandemic. Ever since the UK government invoked the lock down. There were reports of youngsters ignoring the rules.
Angry reports, on social media, of large gatherings of youths in our local parks late into the night. And then there are the illegal raves with hundreds gathering.
Many will say there is no surprise, that this is the young doing what they always do, that we should let them get on with it, leave them alone.
But, and it’s a big but, there are the potential consequences.
Pick something up at these large gatherings and you take it home. Pass it on to your siblings, to your parents and even your grandparents.
Many people will blame the government, saying they are not doing enough. Blaming mixed messages and so on.
But one thing the government has been clear about, have constantly stated amidst all of their messages.
Maintain social distancing, maintain good hygiene practices, wear masks.
I just hope, given the rise in infections amongst the young, that they get the message. And soon.
These people are morons.
With millions dead and millions more sick, these idiots are saying “you can’t catch what doesn’t exist”.
I can only think that they believe the pandemic to be a global conspiracy.
Anybody who enters this salon only has themselves to blame if they or their family and friends get sick.
The authorities should close them down.
Was it all part of the flies master plan ?
Glad the guy is OK, but it did make me smile.
That is my opinion of the organisers and attendees at this illegal rave.
We are constantly being told that it is the older generation, including me, that are at risk, that we should be abiding by the social distancing rules and self isolating.
And yet this message is somehow lost on the young in this country. Although this incident was happening in Wales, it is just one of many that are happening across the whole of the UK.
The young quite happily ignore all the rules. They ignore the fact that anything they pick up, at these events and other such gatherings, will be taken home and shared with their friends and family. Shared with their parents and, possibly, their grandparents.
Ch Supt Simon Belcher says: “This type of illegal gathering is totally unacceptable and we are aware of the concerns it is causing for the local community.
“I would like to again remind people of their obligations under the current coronavirus legislation and the overarching goal for everyone to take personal responsibility by following Welsh government regulations to keep Wales safe.”
What is required is that the government give the powers to clamp down on these incidents and for the authorities to exercise those powers.
The message isn’t getting through. It is time to make examples of the organisers and the attendees.
Finally Boris speaks out against the stupidity being perpetrated by the BBC.
“I think it’s time we stopped our cringing embarrassment about our history”
Hear hear !!!
