A new Sensible Sentencing Trust has been formed called the “Really Sensible Sentencing Trust” which really means Bat-shit Crazies Hugging Vile Scum Trust.
Soon to be unemployed MP Russell Fairbrother has come up with this crazy scheme. Check out some of his reasoning. Apparently it is all the fault of the market economy.
“Inherent in competition are a small number of winners and a larger number of losers. All the evidence tells us it’s from the losers in this competitive model that we fill our prisons,”
Oh so it wasn’t the fact they stole, raped and bashed?
“We’ve seen the income gap increase as the market economy takes hold, and, with the increase of disadvantage, the prison population grows.”
Uh-huh so let me get this straight, it’s the freaking market thats the problem, allowing people to voluntarily buy and sell causes rape, people only murder when coffee prices aren’t regulated and assaults increase the less the state regulates the price of things.
Wow I bet Muldoon never even thought that one of the unintended positive benefits of the wage/price freeze was to stop people committing crimes.
I think this is just another case of a desperate Labour MP trying to keep his publicly funded job safe. One other possible scenario exists for this kind of mumbo jumbo, that is they were up late one night pissed as newts playing truth, dare or promise and Fairbrother got dare. They came up with a batshit crazy idea that he had to get into the media….haha….we’re all laughing, Russell wins.
