Mothers and their drug-addicted boyfriends do it and do not get life- sentences. Drunken drivers do it. Paedophiles torture and kill, and yet find themselves out in the community before you can say ... oh well, what can one possibly say?
If a Home Secretary, vote-driven as they are, cannot see what cruelty and injustice is at work here, how shall we ever civilise our young? If I had been the mother of Jamie Bulger I would have wanted to thrash those two boys to within an inch of their lives: primitive, understandable, but illegal. Did we do better?
