  1. Thanks for leaving my kids scared to sleep at night now, bigman !
    Shows the lack of brain cells he has, as was caught on camera at nearly every property he visited.

  2. The Gov has announced all criminals on bail are to have their bail extended and not go to court, as all prisons are full due to this Gov closing older prisons and failing to build enough new ones. They are also going to release all foreign criminals serving long sentences, 18 months early as long as they are deported and all foreign criminals serving short sentences will have their sentences cancelled and be deported, this will only create 13000 spaces..They will also change sentencing guidelines so all Burglars, shoplifters, junkies etc will be left roaming the streets with no threat of prison, ”community sentences” Well done the Tories

  3. Jobs for building back new prisons and staff to run them? Why not? They shouldn’t be allowed to walk the streets anymore ruining innocent lives.
