Fisk of the day

While the Devil makes his weary way back down from Edinburgh, here's the Reactionary Snob doing a quite splendid job of eviscerating Polly's latest broadside at the forces of common sense:
The ICM poll's first finding that most people think the courts are too soft is no surprise. People always think judges mad when verdicts are reported with no details of the case.

Polly Toynbee having a pop at people for jumping to conclusions without any supporting evidence. If things got any more ironic the space-time continuum would warp so badly I'd end up wanting to fornicate with her.
Recent research finds people are clueless about the current tariff of punishments. But they advocate sentences that are precisely the same as the ones judges actually hand down.

And who published this research? The Nonsense Brigade? The Horseshit Alliance? The Society For The Publication of Bollocks? Most Brits are a) in favour of tougher sentences b) in favour of the death penalty c) in favour of 'lock 'em up for life' d) in favour of ripping the balls off paedophiles.

Glorious stuff - go over and enjoy...

Must be the horseshit alliance- can you think of anyone who thinks Learco Chindamo, or any other scumbag little killer for that matter, should get 12 years for murder - when most of us would stupidly assume that life means life?

Absolutely spot on, though castration of paedos is a bit of a softly-softly approach, if you ask me.

Now that I am back in the Smoke, Fido, I have no doubt that I shall be able to turn my baleful gaze in her direction...
