Obsecrations over outrageous overreaction...

At the risk of being accused of 'putting on my Daily Mail hat' I have to say that some things simply make my blood boil: to wit the extraordinarily outrageous case of the imprisonment of Norman Scarth. On the day I read of a drug dealing, theiving, twice deported illegal immigrant's sentence being CUT to avoid a third deportation, I also read of the imprisonment - in solitary confinement of a class B prison for serious offenders no less - of Norman Scarth. There's no denying Norman broke the Law of the Land but the Law needs to be administered in a just and fair way.

Thanks Span.

I had an email this morning from the guy who issued a Writ of Habeas Corpus for Norman.

Armley gaol will "produce the body" of Norman tomorrow morning. If all goes well he will be home by the weekend.

But, as you point out, the judicial system is broken. Only an insane judge would send him back to gaol.

Let's see what happens tomorrow.

Hello CR, thanks for the update! With any luck sense will prevail but of course it shouldn't need luck!

Good news that he will be out for the weekend, good news at the end of a farce.

Indeed. It was a few weeks ago and Cranmer had it last week, I knew I'd read about before.

Interestingly NS has had a blog for 4 years and 2 days and his interests are "Exposing corruption... especially in the judiciary"; I bet he had upset this judge before!
