This is a change to the law which previously required it to be multiple children or sexually or sadistically motivated. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news...hild-will-mean-life-without-parole-say-tories My first thought was that the intent is to bring back the death Penalty which the Home Secretary has already said she wants, though that was later changed to just wanting to terrify criminals. I can imagine it - death rights given, on the chair, bag over head...ten minutes later 'Only joking. You can go back to your full term live in jail'. So looking at how this far right Tory party works. First no remission. Long argument about how you could possibly suggest these killers were human and should be thought of as such. Then maybe someone mentions it on Question time. They do not deserve to live is strongly suggested and manages to get a following. They bring back the Death Sentence. Then the next thing, Death Sentence and backwards and backwards so that the death sentence is eventually available for disagreeing with the Government. I agree with the death sentence under no conditions. First we kill innocent people and secondly I believe the only reason we have the right to take another life is self defence - and no exaggeration of that. Taking away ones liberty and is the punishment. Whether such a person should ever be released would depend on many things, not least whether they are still a danger for society...but that is by the by. I do not expect anyone to have any concern about such a person. What I am interested in is whether people think this could be a prelude to reintroduction of the Death Penalty. The intent is also to make other sentences harsher. This is a waste of human lives and public resources. I think we have the most people in jail in Europe and are loath to give them the help needed to settle back into society - that is both psychological and job help so that when they come out they stay out.
