One of my great heroes - right up there with Nelson Mandela - is Tony Martin, the Norfolk farmer who very neatly shot a couple of burglars right in the back. It cheered me up no end.
I was outraged at the severity of his five year sentence but was delighted that he couldnt get parole as he showed no remorse.
Well done Mr Martin.
Finally that idiot Blunkett released him and i was hopefull that Mr Martin would stand for parliament, as the locals would have voted him in with a thumping majority.
That never happened. But now i have a new God.
He is Munir Hussain,52 a businessman from High Wycombe..
You probably know his story. A knife wielding burglar breaks into his home. He and his family are tied up by this career minded criminal, who has brought along a couple of masked mates with him.
Mr Hussain escapes and along with his brother captures the criminal and beats him with a cricket bat and metal pole.. Excellent
Instead of recieving a knighthood the judge gives Hussain two and a half years while astonishingly the criminal is not even in prison..
This is what Judge John Reddihough said.
"If persons were permitted to take the law into their own hands and inflict their own instant and violent punishment on an aprehended offender rather than letting the justice system take its course, then the rule of law, which are hallmarks of a civilised society, would collapse..
What sivilised society? Where does this judge live?Does he go into areas of our society where much of this legal framework does not exist.. I suspect not.
What the Judge doesnt understand is that ordinary people do not believe they have justice when they go to court..
It is the Mr Hussains of this world who recieve the biggest cheer.
I look forward to Mr Hussain being released very quickly from this injustice, then he can stand for the commons, preferably against some of the genuine thieves who are currently our MPs..
I enjoyed reading it
