    Put all people committed of un-social behaviour into the Stocks! This will create a demand for stocks, which should help to increase the stock market.

    Seeing as we can’t hit them anymore, I think we should superglue unruly teenagers together.
    As the saying goes if you cant beat them you may as well join them.

    You should be appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe Steve!

  4. Of course, we could do as Andrew Turner MP suggests and bring back hanging.

    That way, to use ‘Yoof Speak’, they can all hang togever

      Your comment, Miffed, reminds me of a former Lord Chief Justice – Lord Goddard. He was a sadistic piece of work. A barrister who wrote a book about him, mentioned the following:

      When Goddard was at school, he had capital punishment leanings. He would often recite the words of judges when sentencing the condemned to death.

      His favourite anecdote at dinners or his club was to relate the tale of how he had sentenced three men in the dock to hang. Just has he said “.. and may the Lord have mercy on your soul” an organ grinder outside the court started up with the Eton Boating song – We’ll all swing together.

      He also related the tale of how he got off a train and asked a porter to carry his bag. He omitted to tip the man who said “don’t you give porters anything” He replied “on the contrary, I once had occasion to give a porter 15 years.

      A nasty piece of work.

  5. Sounds like he had a well developed sense of humour to me.

      One think I forgot to mention in the barrister’s book. Goddard used to get sexual satisfaction when pronouncing the death sentence. Apparently, his clerk noted that he ejaculated into his trousers when pronouncing sentence. Probably due to typical upper class disinterested/cold parenting.
