So while out on probation for this drug addled arsehole decides to break into the house of an 87 year old widow, beat the hell out of her and try to smother her so he could help himself to whatever valuables he could find and he only gets 8 years? I'm sorry but if he is already on probation and has no problem with carrying out a violent attack on a pensioner (personally I don't believe the "I can't remember anything" excuse) then he doesn't deserve to be let out again.

Fair play to the grandmother for chasing after him with her late husband's sword though.  Thumbs:

I know and each time I've said that the situation will only change when the victim is either one of, or related to one of the great and good.  cussing:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

And under auto remission he will only serve 4 years

Tell you what Kier you say that this animal should be released then fine, just as long as he is housed a couple of doors away from your family home so that you can feel the fear and understand the justified anger that parents have at your support for him to be set free.

As dumb a comment as Starmer has ever made

The problem was in the original sentencing which should have been life without parole.  Starmer should have said that and then said 'but as he wasn't . . . . .'

If Boris and his team have any sense they will be beating Starmer around the head with this until the next election. Especially given that the full details of what he did to his victims were suppressed because they were so horrific.  noooo:
