Quote from: Alex on February 09, 2023, 04:45:02 PMAfter Lee Anderson said he would welcome a return of the death penalty under certain circumstances, the media is now full of it ! Having a go at Anderson , to be expected 2nd day in the job gerroff ! For the likes of Lee Rigby killers I'd say yes, hang them. Some child killers too would get my vote for elimination. It won't happen of course, not in woke Britain but I guess we're still allowed to talk about it - for now.

I am in two minds about this, I do think you would have to be very careful, there have been many cases of innocent people being hung, I would only consider it if they were caught red handed like the Lee Rigby case, Brady and Hindley, Shipman etc. anybody found guilty on circumstantial evidence I would not want given the death penalty. The law is a strange thing, look at poor Derek Bentley, he didn't even shoot the policeman, yet he was hung and the other chap who did it didn't serve that many years and was free. Timothy Evans hung for the murders that Christie did, the Irish bomber cases they would all have been hung and were proved innocent. I am really not sure if this is a good idea, but parliament would never pass the law anyway.I am sure Cassandra will give us some welcome guidance.
Quote from: Diasi on February 10, 2023, 09:06:27 AMIn my opinion the Irish bombers were not found innocent, the evidence that convicted them was trashed by crafty lawyers who managed, among other things, to convince the courts that the bombers had got traces of explosives on their hands from a pack of playing cards & their conviction was quashed.So far as I'm concerned, Derek Bentley was guilty under joint enterprise, but once again some campaigning lawyer convinced the court that "let him have it" meant "please let the nice police officer have the gun so he can arrest us & we can go to prison", when anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows that "let him have it" meant "shoot the bugger".

Quote from: klondike on February 11, 2023, 07:51:52 AMI did hear one argument about keeping the ECHR which could even make sense - it protects UK nationals from the UK government as well as Johnny Foreigner....It was a major reason it got set up - to protect against the likes of Hitler.
