Peter Hitchens asks why the honest people of England continue to tolerate the insults thrown in their faces by the establishment.
"Take the case of the career burglar Bradley Wernham, now 19, who has been thieving since he was 12 years old, targeting everything from churches to expensive cars. The grief, anger and distress of his victims – about which our Criminal Injustice System cares nothing – can barely be imagined.
"What happened to him would be ludicrous in any other country. But in this mad nation – under rules which the current Government has no plans to change – a deluded judge gave this creature a ‘last chance’ after hundreds of robberies."
Put him in the stocks. Then do something about the burglar.
