Britians Legal System - The law is still an Ass

I am an MP and a pretty important one at that and that bobby had the nerve to give me grief.

Well I said to him you are a pleb I mean how dare these lower class police question me. I am from the elite class so there!! No it was not a Boris bike it was my very own bike.

Am I arrested? No. Am I thrown in the stocks? No. Made to brush the street? No. Fined? No Lost my job? No. Should I have any of these punishment? No. Told to apology and a day standing guard on a gate doing that policeman's job  is what I would have ordered. Then a history lesson on what happened in the French Revolution due to a class system.

Update - The Chief whip has now resigned

I am young and showing off on fb to look big with my friends. I write some pretty awful things. Am I arrested? Yes. Do I go to prison Yes. Will it affect my job prospects Yes for the rest of my life. Is it expensive to keep me in prison? Yes.

Should I have gone to prison No. There are other punishments like brushing the streets, a fine, a caution, a warning, or no action at all.

I wore a horrible tee-shirt that was offensive and hurtful. Should I go to prison? No. The people in the area really wanted some action though? People may want action but they may also want a lynching but the law is above  emotion (really?) it should be. Again plenty of other options without resorting to a prison sentence.

I hit my girlfriend and was controlling and abusive to her. Did I go to jail? No. I got to brush the street but then hitting someone is not as important as words on fb or a tee-shirt is it! I mean its only some bird.  (link) to womens aid

Makes no sense does it? fb and tee-shirts words = prison

Abusing a woman = community service

Be fair dear be fair

I am a young marine and I filmed a bad decision on my mobile. I am in a war situation and someone is killed. A year later five of us are charged with murder. Is this right?  Yes unfortunately it is although we don`t wish them to be found guilty. Campaign `Free the 5` is gaining strength of fb.

Our laws were based on a belief in equality
but it needs people to administer the law equally
