‘Tough’ Community Service – Another Ken Clark Option Doomed To Failure!

I know money is tight and the prisons are full, but I cannot for the life of me understand how our Justice Minister, Ken Clark, keeps rattling on about ‘Community Service’ being the answer to re-offending! This man is so out of touch with public opinion as to be laughable. Even his own government department statistics say he is totally wrong. Many Tory M.P’s were angry at his move away from tough sentencing.

Time To Go?

I am sorry Ken, you have given your country good service over the years, but you really should consider retirement.

He promises that instead of sitting at home watching TV or being down the pub having a beer when they are supposed to be doing community service, prisoners will be made to work a minimum of 28 hours a week paying back the community doing odd jobs like clearing up litter and painting!

THIS Is Hard Work - 48 Hours A Week!

Considering that working people put in at least 48 hours a week I don’t call that ‘Hard Labour’ as he calls it. I also don’t think clearing up rubbish and painting is ‘hard labour’!

True, he is stuck with a problem in that the prisons are full and cost the country a fortune, but there are far better ways than this stupid idea. Criminals should be ‘banged up’ and anything less is just not good enough.

Even Women Prisoners Get To Improve Their Snooker Skills

If he really needs to cut expenses, take away all the TV’s, pool tables, gym machines and other luxuries that prisoners enjoy daily. Things which law-abiding people cannot afford! The cost of all these items comes from his Justice Department budget, and consequently the tax payer. That’s how you save money Ken!!!!

It is time all these superfluous things were taken away and the prisons turned back into places of punishment, not 5 Star hotels. Criminals in British prisons consider our penal system a joke, and that is why they turn to a life of crime, and why they re-offend as soon as they are released, sometimes within days for cryin’ out loud!

After A Hard Day Playing Snooker

Our Ken is so out of touch, he is even giving them a day off to look for a job; “Where convicts are unemployed, they will be forced to work a minimum of 28 hours over four days, with the fifth day spent looking for a job”. At least they will have time enough for a drink with their mates, or perhaps commit another crime!!!!

For the last thirty years, the public have been begging each successive government to ‘get tough on crime’, and sure enough, during each election all parties swear they will be.

Labour went the other way during their last term in office. Under them, less than half of all community orders were completed, and one in ten was cut short because the person doing it reoffended before completing  it. Criminals placed on community orders in 2008 committed almost a quarter of a million offences in the following 12 months. Of these, 1,500 were serious crimes such as murder and rape.

Although we have had promises (as usual) from the Conservatives and Liberals, what they are proposing still isn’t enough!

How Our Cells Are....

It is time Britain had its own Bill of Rights (even though we have the Magna Carta), and all these ‘Human Rights’ nutters should be told to go jump off the nearest cliff.

You cannot turn people away from a life of crime by being soft, and hoping they will change their ways. In our society, criminals, and especially young ones, see crime as the ‘way to go’. If caught they have little to fear, as is proven time and again by the fact many re-offend even while on bail for the first offence.

....And How They Should Be!

The youth of today are feared by much of the population, and they revel in it. It gives many a ‘buzz’ to see honest citizens cross the road rather than share a pavement with them. They are drunk with their own perceived ‘power’ and exercise it at will. They have no fear of going to prison, because it will at least give them chance to play a few rounds of snooker!

People have been complaining about the ‘harsh’ sentences handed out following the recent riots, but folks, that’s what you have been asking for all these years. Finally you get a government that is fulfilling your wishes, and you still complain!!!!!!

You Want To Give HIM A Slap-on-the -Wrist?

Stop whining and support those of our politicians who are willing to give out harsh sentences. Only by insisting the law return to complete impartiality can we hope for a return to any form of normalcy. Breaking the law is breaking the law, no matter how trivial the offence may seem!  

Campaign, or start a petition to get rid of all the luxuries prisoners enjoy on a daily basis, and insist our prisons return to what they once were; A place of punishment. Only by putting the fear of God into criminals will we ever persuade them to change their ways!

The TUC Demonstration And The Rogue Element

Thugs On The Rampage - Again!

So once again the thugs rule the streets of London and tarnish what is left of Britain’s reputation in the world. Again we see wanton destruction just for the sake of it by a semi-literate minority who have messed up their own lives and cannot stand that other people have more than they do. I sometimes think we are regressing back into the stone age rather than moving away from it.

What The Police Have Accept - But Why?

Meanwhile the police are once again in the firing line, and according to the great unwashed, can’t seem to do anything right. It makes me sad to see what is happening in our once great country, and I am glad I no longer live there. When I retired from NATO I was asked by many of my colleagues if I would return to England, and to that I gave a resounding NO!

To be honest, with the way the country has declined over the past fifteen years or so, wild horses couldn’t drag me back.

Ever since the last Labour government came to power I have witnessed, albeit from afar, the steady destruction of our culture, a soaring (youth) crime rate, and the steady decline of our social services into waste, inefficiency and abuse. I have seen the rise of busybodies who can change laws at a whim to promote fringe groups, who in a normal society would not even have a ‘look in’. In short, I have seen our nation torn apart from the inside!

We have been flooded with immigrants we didn’t want thanks to Tony Blair and his idea of multiculturalism, we have seen enormous power handed to groups like the ‘Human Rights Brigade’, the ‘Racial Discrimination and Religious Rights Loonies’ who appear hell bent on turning the country over to the criminals and immigrants.

And now to top all that, we have gangs of thugs running rampant through the streets of our capital smashing everything in sight, and defacing everything they cannot break. Is it any wonder I don’t want to live there any more?

Peaceful Demonstration

I do applaud the 400,000 or so who made their protest peacefully, and to be sure, the discontent was down to 2 or 3 hundred mal-adjusted youth who used the event as an opportunity to go on the rampage. But as with all protests in the past, these people come out of the woodwork on just such an occasion to vent their fury at how ‘unfair’ life has been to them. Few seem to care that ‘you only get out of life what you put in’, but that is typical of today’s youth who think life owes them a good living simply because they exist!

The basic principle of working hard for a good standard of living went out when Labour got in, and now they all think life is a free ride and they need to do nothing to earn it. These days they can live off benefits and do not need to work.

I have often gone into the reasons for this attitude among todays youth in previous posts.

Dye Spray Works!

All this does not detract from the fact that in situations like those in London yesterday, the police are hampered by what they are allowed to do to end this wanton destruction. For example, why are the police not allowed to use dye sprays or water cannon in such situations. Dye sprays cover the person on the receiving end with a colour marking that lasts for days and would surely help the police in rounding up these urban terrorists at their leisure. There is nothing more efficient at making an unruly crowd move on than a water cannon, used I might add to such good effect by German police! So why not here??????

The sons of bitches who cause all the problems have several weapons in their arsenal, chief among them yesterday was light bulbs filled with ammonia!!! Do you have any idea what ammonia will do to the eyes???? Yet the police had to face attacks with these weapons, plus paint balls, bottles and stones.

As a civilised human being, I have to ask you; Is that right??? Is this what YOU think our police deserve??? I sure as hell don’t! Don’t waste your sympathy on the tow-rags who set out to destroy parts of London and threatened innocent tourists, save it for the poor sods who have to try and contain them.

From the following video sequence it is clear that some rioters were actually encouraged by paparazzi photographers who surrounded them at every turn. You can hear at least one saying “Go on smash it in!”.

Phew! I’m glad I got that off my chest! But seriously folks, unless you are born rich you cannot have everything. You have to get an education and work hard to advance yourself in today’s world, and believe me, nothing else will work – unless you’re lucky enough to win the lottery – some hopes! Too many people are looking for a free ride in todays’ society and who more so than benefit cheats who are costing the country billions every year.

After all the ‘slack’ years with Labour its time our social system and benefits budget were given a good scrutiny to stop people like those I wrote about some time ago:

Darned Good Idea!

Can you honestly blame the current government for wanting to weed out these parasites and get them earning a living instead of sponging off the state? I think its high time! The amount of wastage in public services has gone through the roof, and where money should be going to those that need it, it is being frittered away. A prime example is the tens of thousands of pounds it will cost to repair, yet again, the damage caused by a discontented few.

All our social services are failing rapidly, everything from the education system, through the NHS and benefits system as I wrote only yesterday:

https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2011/03/27/miliband-sings-the-labour-song-at-the-london-demo/

Instead of exacerbating the situation with pure unadulterated political profiteering like we saw from Ed Miliband yesterday, its time people realized that the situation will only get better if everyone works together to make the pain as short lived as possible.

Its time for decent people to stop the belly aching and start working together to get the country back on its feet. Its what my generation did in times of crisis.  Wow! I guess I blew off some steam with this one! I hope you don’t mind! I would be interested to hear your views.

Roy.
