Yeah, if harsh punishment doesn't deter much, increasing harshness isn't necessarily best option.

Party registration just determines which primary they can vote in, I think!

Not sure if this is what you're asking but a registered Republican can vote Democrat if they want to.

Dunno, but you can increase number of floggings; likelihood of being caught is more important than punishment harshness tho.

The lion eats birds, large mammals, etc – people who only think in terms of intentions are ignoring their suffering!

That's for a majority, which admittedly looks tough. SNP might not look nearly so scary in 2020 though.

Yeah, exactly! I wouldn't be pessimistic if I was a Labour person at all. Would prob vote Cooper and hope for the best.

Why are people so fatalistic? Five years is ages. Any party could turn things around in 5 years given decent circumstances.

Prison: Still not a good way to deal with non-violent criminals.

Yes, certainly. Prison IMO should be about keeping the public safe, there are better alternatives for all other goals of justice

Tom Hayes isn't a danger to anyone. Why incarcerate him? Flog him if you must, but imprisonment is a pointless waste of £££.
