    One small step for Britain, but one giant leap for Hamble.

    This is happening increasingly across Britain. The reason: There is no punishment to fit the crime.

    In addition we face long term systematic sabotage by central government (make your own mind up whether that resides in Brussels or London) of our police service. This has taken the form of deliberate police underfunding resulting in stations having to shut at night like local convenience stores. Also we have endured the removal of police on the beat. All this is a recipe for lawlessness, which is exactly what you are beginning to see in Hamble.

    The British people have gone soft. Next they go rotten just like their leaders. The remedy is to bring back the death penalty for cold blooded murder. Without that, all penalties are devalued to worthlessness.

    For this sort of offence (robbery) the punishment should be 14 years in prison with time off for good behaviour. For armed robbery the death penalty should be available. Watch the robbery rate plummets after THAT! For “problem” thugs, I would bring back the birch.

    We’ve been conditioned by the post war softies and do gooders. They really got going in the 1960s. That’s about 50 years of rot to undo but it can be done. Britain CAN be great again.
