Thanks DL, you really know how to cheer someone up late at night.

They don't get me on this one though "Your shopping habits are studied and logged by the State", cash only, me.

- Prison Sentences halved after Prisoners arrive at Prison (Scotland)
- Police degraded to mere 'Community Wardens' with reduced powers to arrest, and even after arrest the PF will throw out the case as offenders will not be jailed in a high proportion of the time (Scotland)
- Introduction of ASBO's, which are license for offenders to continue their crime sprees or intimidation within communities
- Introduction of drug substitutes to allow users to continue their self imposed habits whilst claiming high amounts of Welfare in the form of Invalidity Benefit, instead of facing the issue head on and irradicating drug misue in the UK
- Introduction of Environmental Wardens to increase Local Government Revenues, opposed to further increasing Policing Budgets
- Destruction of the Prosecution System, to an extent where all crime pays

One of the worse thing I have seen, whilst I worked for the SPS, was during Bank Holidays. Anyone with an Interim Diet Warrant (7 Days in Custody) would turn themselves in late on Thursday night, why?

Well, firstly, the Warrant is halved to 3.5 days, then as the following Monday is a Bank Holiday, the offender cannot be released on the Monday.

So, by turning him/herself in late on the Thursday Evening, he/she would be released on the Friday Morning! Effectively, an 8 hours sentence, or in plain English - 1 night Bed & Breakfast, in return for 7 Days for committing a crime!

There is no real Criminal Justice System in the UK anymore!

Scary stuff.


" They don't get me on this one though "Your shopping habits are studied and logged by the State", cash only, me.

Not quite accurate. Cameras at checkouts now have facial recognition to check for fraud. They can be matched to the facial recognition at your cashpoint or inside your bank when you get the cash out. Easy to check your till receipt against your face /name and see what you're buying.
Now if you wore a burqua.....

RantinRab said... least in Scotland we have the SNP....

Fuck me. We are doomed!!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Banned, as I know you regularly wear a balaclava and a hoodie when you go out shopping, spending cash, you should be ok. You won't get into many shops BTW, but you can always buy an ice cream from that nice Mr Whippy!

Dark Lochnagar said...

DieKaisers, welcome. An admirable first contribution to the conversation on this blog. Thanks. Yes, the previous Libab pact we had in Scotland has a lot to answer for. Not only the justice system but he lucrative contracts they gave in the Health Service, which are now costing us dear. Not to mention the PPI contracts which will cost us £billions. Hopless bastards!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Boabs, I think Banned wearing a hoodie and a balaclava is enough without the burqua!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Rab, Rab, Rab. First we support the SNP, get our own country back and then we decide what sort of politics we want to shape a future independent country.

RantinRab said...

Aye, fair point DL.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Rab, does that mean you're a convert!

banned said...

wee boaby Fuck it.
I'll take DLs advice and get a fucking burkha, as well as my balaclava and hoodie.

Banned, why just not cover your face with bandages like the 'invisible man'?
