The new crime legislation is stupid: arbitrary minimum sentences, the
ineffectiveness of which the coattail draggers from the Conservative
Party can't assess; prisons to the right of us, prisons before and
behind, both a school for crime and a school for scandal; "anti-drug
laws" that will treat teenage foolishness like drug

Where will they get the funds, all the while calling for deficit and
debt reduction?

Will they come from the same social services that reduce crime rates,
the rates we know have been reducing crime incidence over the past 30

This is a stupid-on-crime legislation and not what we voted for. We
didn't vote to bring an end to civil society, decency or justice.
