This will not be able to be dealt with at the magistrates court, the offences are too serious. Hope this gezza gets exactly what he deserves, a prison sentence and throw away the key.

If I had a quid for every time somebody said “throw away the key” in the comments.. it really does highlight the retardedness of people in our society. Not sure whats worse the knob heads and they’re petty criminality or the idiots commenting on it ..makes for funny reading though I guess lol

And there is no such word “retardness”. Also it would not be “whats” but instead “what’s”.

Hope our new island task force and others set up throughout the country listen to local concerns and instead of giving goodwill charities the upper hand in sentencing….the honest people in this country need to be listened to…conservative got in on law & order & immigration….but they are failing us ….

task force conjures up images of a strong, confident, purpose lead, cohesive and a structured group, whereas the reality is a weak group of hand wringing, argumentative, lefty do gooders, hell bent on protecting the rights of the criminal over the victim.
