From the Rev’d Dr Peter Mullen:
The European Court of Human Rights has declared that a whole life tariff, which means that convicted murderers are never to be released from prison, is ‘inhuman and degrading’ after an appeal brought by Jeremy Bamber, who killed five members of his family in 1985. The court proposed that those serving life with no possibility of parole should have their cases reviewed after 25 years, following which they might be freed. This decision means that prisoners serving whole life tariffs, including some of Britain’s most notorious killers such as Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, and Ian Brady, the Moors Murderer, could be granted permission to seek parole.
Forget your revulsion at the prospect of evil men being rewarded for their wickedness by the prospect of freedom. Forget also the utopian totalitarian ambitions of international bureaucracies such as the ECtHR. Forget even the fact…
