    Is this a proper story or something from the daily sport?

    Totally agree, there are some who start serious crime at a very young age and the fact remains, once criminals have got into serious crime, most offenders are far beyond any help, whatever age that is.

    I'm certainly not knocking youth offending intervention, it's about the only worth while work, once serious offenders reach adulthood it's almost always too late and the money wasted on them would be better spent elsewhere.

    The most effective sentence to date was the IPP sentence, it has since been banned as it was against prisoners human rights, it was reserved for only the most serious offenders who were deemed dangourous to the public and they were only released once they were assessed to be safe.

    Yes since 2003, look before that I.e 1997 when the human rights act came in totally softening the prison system. Spot on For the record, I happen to know a thing or two about prison and have witnessed the system first hand for many years, so I do know what I'm talking about.

    Absaloutly spot on, it is the very conclusion I came to after many years, if your not involved in the criminal justice system im impressed you came to that conclusion without witnessing it first hand. Prison works well for first time offenders but is treated as a joke by those who are habitually in and out, they all know their way around the system, they all know each other and they have absaloutly no fear of it, something needs to change if we're ever to break the cycle, there's an old saying, sometimes you need to be cruel to be kind, if a hard system stopped people reoffending it would be a positive thing and prevent huge amounts of human suffering.

    Henrey d Reoffending rates have gone up drastically since our care bear prison system, it's right that no prison system has ever stopped reoffending which is why for the worst offenders we should bring back the death penalty or warehouse them cheaply, rehabilitation doesn't work for hardened offenders, it should be focused on the young and non habitual offenders before they go too far.

    Treating softwood for outside use

    Beat me to it, I used to use alot of this and it lasts forever, used to call it poor man's teak, ruins cutter blades and gets right down your throat but great for external joinery.

    I'm all for helping people but at some point you have to draw a line, I and most normal people would draw that line at putting the rights of dangerous criminal before that of potential future victims, the care bear society where do gooders make excuse after excuse for these people are part of the problem and only help to drag society down causing the problems to continue. That said I do beleive society should try, so long as it's not at the detriment of good people who are doing the right thing, taking help from no one and struggle on while the scum of society are given chance after chance. +1

    Another interesting issue raised Gordon and one i hadn't thought of, that would be an enormous own goal.

    opt out organ donation

    I know it is a complex issue, but the legislation will undoubtedly mean some who would have refused if they knew, could have organs taken, if it's as cut and dried as saving lives, why not make it compulsory?

    Not if you don't know about the legislation your not, so how many million people could potentially have their organs harvested without giving consent?

I just hope the EU continue to be so unreasonable it forces a no deal, it would be far better than any "deal" Theresa the appeaser and the rest of her remainiac friends will come up with.

    I always find the human mindset fascinating. We as a race are very hypocritical, for instance, we as shooters are sick of antis trying to enforce their beliefs on to us and we find it hard to understand why the antis can't see our point of view, yet in the same breath I watch members of the shooting community advocating all sorts of rules and laws be imposed on others. I firmly beleive in freedom of choice, like the recent Burka debate started by Boris Johnson, although he doesn't agree with people wearing it, the moment you start forcing people to dress a certain way and imposing your thoughts on to someone else, you are no longer living in a free country, I see the organ opt out in the same vain.
