Just wrap it up...

...And label it 'being tough'.

The latest initiative peddled is the threat to drivers using mobile phones.


Those that commit murder and serious assaults are threatened with 'life imprisonment' but seem to be o/s the walls of HMP prior to their natural demise.
This particular example is one of a number of 'jail jail jail' yet we have no places. We are setting people free early to make more space.
This is not belittling the offence of driving whilst on the mobile etc.. but they could be dealt with by strict enforcement leading to fines/penalty points /disqualification ...leaving the possibility of available spaces being left for people I would want to be off the streets for at least some time.

Another media soundbite to be placed under the festive Criminal Justice tree with the rest
