Yeah that's not actually why the death penalty was abolished and remains out of use (that would be the issue of wrongful conviction), but don't let that get in the way of yet another tedious, self-righteous rap lecture. 

..except nowhere in my post do I mention any reason for the repeal of Capital Punishment - which was a tad more complex than your soundbite opinion. I'm sure your wee acolytes will be round soon to give your sharp insight the reputation they feel deserving of the Great Swami of Inverclyde, so that's nice.

Exactly.

The measures the Zero Covid brigade wanted to keep in place unnecessarily would disproportionately impact others, socially, financially and so on.  

Advocating these things is absolute c**t behaviour when you’re doing fine and it’s somebody else’s livelihood at stake. Especially when it came hand in hand with those who questioned Zero Covid as being selfish and uncaring.

Taking delight at such sanctimony coming crashing down around us is fair game, and it says a lot about those who don’t like a light being shone on such behaviour.
 

Pulling up someone for laughing at a virus ripping through a mostly unvaccinated country says a lot about me?

The zero COVID people are nutters but I’m not about to start laughing at the state Australia is in just now.

That's not what anyone is doing, though.

Wonder what the thoughts of Devi 'Book Coming' Sridhar are on #ZeroCovid now btw. Silent, presumably.

I’m happy to laugh at people who pointed to Australia as some sort of example as to how to do things.

It’s just the usual pc nonsense.

In my book, a client is someone paying voluntarily for a professional service.

Convicts are people being deprived of their liberty by the state because they have carried out a misdemeanour against society.

I just think the word ‘client’ is wrong in this context.

A prison sentence should be a combination of punishment, education and rehabilitation.

 

First bolded bit requires, I believe, no explanation for opprobrium.

Second bit betrays a lack of appreciation of the CJ system which (I think) Wee Bully alluded to later in the conversation

Inmate - yes, okay.

My first thought would be convict - noun of convicted but maybe that’s a bit old fashioned.

First line - absolutely not, and has been out of use in the system for over a decade. 

Second line - same lack of understanding as post 1. Not all prisoners are convicts.

Steady up.

I seem to recall stating that the purpose of a custodial sentence should be punishment, education and rehabilitation.

I don’t mind being at the opposite end from you politically and, therefore fit for abuse from your self imposed sainthood but, in this case, I think you’re being a little unfair.

You did say a custodial sentence should be a combination of three things. Thing is, again, it's a wee bit more complex than that. Sorry, scrap that. A custodial sentence is waayy more complex than that. A fact which some on here understand, fewer have knowledge of, and some don't actually care about, because, of course, it's the usual PC nonsense. Just lock the fuckers uop, yeah?

Again -  NOBODY gets punished in Prison in this country, unless they commit further offences whilst in custody.

Just how repugnant can these people get? The likes of Nick Griffin and Nigel Farage clearly should have thought to weaponise 'public health', it seems. Any person who sails in their ship or agrees with them at this point is a fucking disgrace.

 

Meanwhile, after Sky's 'science correspondent' (deliberately?) misunderstood the current UK Covid data yesterday, of course today another 'journalist' now indulges in the latest overblown fear porn and even quotes Gurdasani's psychotic tweeting. What a time to be alive.

I’m really not sure where you are going with this.

The people we are talking about are being punished by the restriction of their liberty.  What we were talking about was how we educate and rehabilitate them, as some people were complaining about them being referred to as “clients”.

Where I am going is simply stating that these criminals are lucky to have people like you prepared to bat for them.

At virtually any other time in history they'd have been left to rot in a hole.

Some "enlightened" commentators try to place the roots of criminal behaviour in drug use and misuse, and there's some truth in that. Deeper, though, is the root cause these two anti-social behaviours have in common - poverty.

Jeezo.

More excuses. :thumbsdown

Boobies get bigger and penises wont shrink. If this doesn't get the younger ones rushing to get jabbed then nothing will.

The latter article from the respected medical journal, the Lad Bible, I still hold in higher regard than the recently-posted Mail Online piece.

Three quarters of an hour for this "snappy" comeback.
I suppose that's what happens when you're in a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

What state do you think Australia is in? Current outbreak in Sydney is running about 200 cases a day so hardly ripping through. Total deaths still less than 1000 nationally since the start of the pandemic. Effective quarantine, local lockdowns and aggressive contact tracing work.

I watched the video and all he seems to say is it's not an MRNA vaccine which is true.

I've wondered if he is legit for a long time and i'm actually more convinced he is after that because anyone with a cynical bone in their body would have checked the money.

Not as well as vaccines.
