Judge Not

I see the PM was quick in getting on-side with the Daily Mail Tendency about remarks made by a judge, who said burglars show courage, although he later back-tracked a bit.

Let's analyse what the judge said: "It takes a huge amount of courage, as far as I can see, for somebody to burgle somebody's house. I wouldn't have the nerve." Well, I can't, in all honesty, disagree.

I agree with Cameron that it is a hateful crime, but one is not automatically a coward for committing a hateful crime.

Burglary is committed by government spies - does that automatically make the spies cowards? I somehow think the PM and the Daily Mail Tendency would praise British spies for showing courage. It is nonetheless burglary, albeit government sanctioned. 

Quite sensibly, the judge will not be censured, which will doubly annoy the knee-jerkers.

Imagine what an army of courageous burglars could achieve in Afghanistan - providing they're not spaced out on smack, although that may feasibly help.


  1. "Burglary", oh is that what he said. You know what my hearing is like - I thought he said "buggary"
