The Labour Home Secretary…

I seem to recall the legal system under Michael Howard in the 1990’s as being fairly tight. The killers of Jamie Bulger, for instance were sent down and it was felt unlikely that they would re-appear for quite some time.

2001 was a good year to bury bad news – not my words, the words of Alistair Campbell. So it was that they were released by David Blunkett, having served about seven or eight years (not even in prison).

If they hadn’t been, there would not even be the question of re-offending at this moment in time. But nobody seems to have picked up on that one…
