I see quite a lot of social media posts during the course of the typical week, and recently I saw 2 about the Labour Party that should concern anyone with an interest in child safety.

At least that’s what it appears from this post I’ve seen from yesterday…
Seems he wants to get shot of elected Police Commissioners, introduced by the Conservative/LibDem Coalition, and originally touted in the book The Plan by Daniel Hannan MEP + his old partner in crime Douglas Carswell in order to restore localism to policing decisions instead of them being made miles away in London.
Perhaps if we had a Recall law for ALL elected officials (also to be found in the same book), instead of the watered down half-arsed versions I’ve heard have been attempted to be enacted so far, we wouldn’t have trouble getting shot of that bloke from South Yorkshire who won’t quit.
Is it just me, or do “Alcohol Units” on bottles / cans of Booze make no sense to anyone when you’re out and about without the ability to look-up online what the hell they’re on about? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_of_alcohol
For a while now I’ve been thinking why don’t they put something easier to understand on there instead, like “This Product will get you 35% of the way to being too pissed to drive”?
Alcohol Units just tell you how many units of alcohol you’ve drunk, and uses small numbers that don’t reinforce how close you are to over-doing things…… my way would.
From what I’ve heard it costs between £30,000 – £50,000 a year to keep someone in prison (though don’t know how they got that figure).
So based on that, to keep someone who’s done something to land them a life sentence would cost the following:
20 years = £600,000 – £1,000,000 (a million quid)
25 years = £750,000 – £1,250,000
30 years = £900,000 – £1,500,000
In comparison, a length of rope costs less than £1 a metre (unless maybe it was bought through one of New Labour’s dodgy PFI Contracts). A Gun such as a Heckler & Koch MP5 can be picked up over in the USA for about $1,500 (£901), and a box of 9mm bullets apparently cost $20 in Walmart over in the states…. for some people, surely the death penalty is the better option? (and it saves the taxpayers money having to look after the scum)
