I just dont know what's happening to this country at all.
Some minister has now decided that its a good idea that Car drivers should always be held responsible if they are involved in a accident with a cyclist, even if its the cyclists fault.
Yes.. it was the Mail again... sorry.
What with over 75% of drunken and disorderly cases no longer being processed by police, with the police just giving them a rap on the wrist, and many other thousands of cases no longer being prosecuted due to cost cutting, we are becoming a totally lawless society.
We have had a system in the UK for some time which appears to favour the thug rather than the victim. I'm waiting for some bright spark in the government to suggest that victims will in future be fined, and compensation will be paid to the criminal. This is the direction we are heading, and I suspect cannot be far away
What a pathetic nation we have become.
Where do they manage to find these brainless idiots from, as it appears no-one in government seems to have any decent common sense at all.
I noted in a report the weekend about the number of un-insured drivers in the UK that in the event a un-insured driver killed someone by dangerous driving they would only face a maximum of 2 years prison sentence. So if your young child is mowed down and killed by some young thug who is also uninsured as is likely the case when vehicles are stolen, the thug is likely to receive 2 years or less. Surely that's not justice... the justice system is a total joke.
