Voting Labour costs lives

More than 2,500 people have been stabbed to death on Labour's watch, according to figures soon to be published by the Home Office.

Yet, over the same period, only nine of the countless criminals caught with knives have been given the maximum jail term.

Take 2006, a year scarred by a series of teenage stabbings, and the latest for which full sentencing statistics are available. Some 1,226 under-18s were found guilty of carrying a blade yet only 72 were put behind bars.

The average sentence was 3.4 months, which because of early-release rules, meant that a typical offender spent just eight weeks in jail.

The remainder escaped with a fine, a community sentence or - in 113 cases - a discharge. Only one of the 7,817 knife offenders of all ages received the maximum sentence in 2006.

As you can see voting Labour costs lives. Labour no longer even try to enforce the law or punish criminals. Those that do get sent to prison are released early and thse that terrorise communities get ASBO’s. If they disobey their ASBO nothing will happen to them.

Labour said they were tough on crime and tough on the causes of crime. The truth is they couldn’t be softer on crime if they tried.

Crime is so bad in London that there is an average of 8 violent crimes in London per day and that’s just on the buses!

In Scotland it is so bad that you are more likely to go to prison for shoplifting than for sexual assault. The prison officers who have to guard these criminals have realised that crime pays which is why the government now estimates that 10% of prison officers are corrupt and the government are now setting up a unit to death with corruption in the prison service.
