So how does HE pay if he's on benefits? This just means he gets no jail time and the taxpayer pays of his debt.

That's why our country is the laugh of the world we don't punish anyone anymore, unless its big money or Murder offences

we give money to anyone who does not want to work and we provide free healthcare to anyone who needs it regardless of them contributing to it so why would they work?

we allow our country to be influenced by people who walk in from outside countries and want to change our country to suit them,

Our courts will do anything to avoid sending people to prison to save the country money.

we do need National Service and we do need Capital punishment back
