I think not. Surely she has broken equality laws in a very open fashion? If not the actual law certainly the spirit of them.

Not sure that she will get away with that,Blatant reverse discrimination.
Ludicrous reasoning.
I read that earlier - unbelievable! She could have killed someone!

I am not what appauls me most.

1) The fact she thinks a woman should be let off or

2) Openly gobbing off about it.

Hopefully this will get reversed, or another judge looking at it.
I think that the Lord Chief Justice may take an interest in this matter.She deserves to be disciplined.
I can't work out her reasoning... She seems to be directly saying she will not be imprisoned because she is a woman. But why?
She appears to be giving her a chance to change her ways.

Addressing Parry, the judge added: 'You richly deserve an immediate custodial sentence of 18 months. I want to see whether you can really address the issues rather than paying lip service.

'If you succeed, I will not make the custody immediate. If you don't comply, I will conclude that you are not worthy of the chance.'

Tilly, that bit is not the problem.

This bit is:

"Judge Sarah Buckingham said: 'If Miss Parry was a man, there is no question it would have been straight down the stairs, because this is a shocking case of dangerous driving against a background of two previous convictions for excess alcohol."

Implying a man would not have go the chance.

So why are judgements being made on gender?
Ok, thanks tilly. Women and men are different and what works for one, may not for the other. I guess we will see.
Yes, that is often the reason behind a suspended sentence - however saying straight out that it would have been different for a man is very wrong.
If she hadn't said this then all would have been fair enough:-
//Victoria Parry, 30, was told by a woman judge at Warwick Crown Court that if she had been a man 'it would have been straight down the stairs' to prison//

"Women and men are different and what works for one, may not for the other"

Oh dear, be careful there or the AB 'wimin' will be on your case!

Psst - I agree with you (he whispers).
It's a fact, ymb, and I doubt anyone will disagree anyway. Women learn better with "feeling guilty" and men with "punishment". It makes no sense to treat everyone the same, if it is more effective not to.
Pixie, are you agreeing with the judge's comments.
It wasn't her first offence, maybe she'll learn from this one.
She needs rehab. Maybe this fright will push her into the right direction.
I don't know, Danny. I wanted to know her actual reasoning and psychology knowledge. Without that, i've no idea.
pixie......
" Women learn better with "feeling guilty" and men with "punishment"

Really?....where did you pick that gem up and who said it , where and from what evidence?

You had better report this to the Judiciary as there are more women in UK jails than men.
Gosh I never new that. I'd have bet it was the other way round.
