Vent Your Spleen

Article excerpt

Regarding Britain's so-called justice system. Here we have yet another soft option, a baby killer released from prison, yet another instance of punishment failing to fit the crime and this was a horrendous crime, post-natal depression or not.

We see this happening week after week, with victims of crime paying the penalty for being a victim while the guilty party smiles at the indifference of the courts, what price that baby's life? They say her punishment will be carrying the guilt with her for the rest of her life.

Baby killers should not be able to hide behind the infanticide law, they should all be put away for life.

REGARDING Tuesday's Chronicle about the patriot putting the Union Flag up and being ordered to take it down.

Health and safety officers have told him to take it down as it was a form of advertising and he had to have planning permission for it and he was breaking the law. Rubbish! The Union Flag and St George's Flag are our national flags. Labour MP, Ronnie Campbell, says that we should fly the flag more and be proud of it.

The environment officer at the council said we are not asking Mr Robinson to remove the flagpole but rather move it. Is this a joke? Fly the flag Mr Robinson and be proud of it. I fly my St George's flag and the Union Flag every day and also on my car.

I READ an article in the paper in which Alan Robinson is being told he can't fly the Union Flag above his house.

He's been ordered to take it down. I thought this was a free country. It doesn't seem like it. It is pathetic when a man has got to take down a flag that supports our soldiers fighting in Iraq. This gentleman is supporting our country and showing Britishness and I think it is disgusting that we can't live in a free country and show our support for our troops
