I expect he will be out in time to enjoy this Summer. Jails too full of the world’s dregs now to ever give meaningful sentences to our own home grown delights any more.

As more of both increase time will make it so much worse, never better.

Given the waiting list for Crown Court cases ( and higher courts), I doubt that Summer will be on the list.

Either drunks or junkies. Pubs will be open soon, so expect more of this at the weekends.

Typical. This is what happens when we open our beautiful Island borders to just about anyone.

They are all probably scratching around on the lookout for drugs to put into their sorry bodies. When they don’t get them or money is owed, this is what happens. Why can’t they do something good with their lives instead of wasting it taking drugs.
