Labour go soft on crime

John Reid softens crime stance!

The Home Secretary Dr. John Reid has prematurely cancelled plans to allow magistrates to hand out longer custodial sentences, he has also backed down on the call to train an additional 29,000 magistrates.

In an obvious attempt to alleviate the pressure on the overburdoned prison service, the Home Secretary has single handedly given the initiative back to the criminals. His "not fit for purpose" Home Office ought to immediately plan to cut wasteful expenditure to allow the building of more prisons and secure units, the victims of crime deserve nothing less. He may as well get on with it now before Gordon Brown tightens the purse strings in his comprehensive spending review, something which will prove necessary as interest rates have started to rise.
