Risible? Plain bloody obscene more like!

There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

"A repeat offender killed someone through their consistently poor driving, and they were allowed to drive home from the court with just a small fine."

And yet a gang of blokes who tried to steal a diamond from the the Millenium Dome got up to 15 years.

That sure as hell doesn't sound like common sense to me. Driving is the only daily humman activity I know of where one group of people regularly maims and kills others, and gets away with it the majority of times.

I'd be interested to know if the family of the cyclist who was killed did anything to get a stiffer (and more just) sentence for that driver.

I cycle a great deal, and it makes my blood boil, too. It doesn't get much more hilarious when you ride a motorcycle either.

The Law is, indeed, and ass.

Even the cretin who caused Selby only got five years - and he killed ten people.
