well I think it would put the issue to bed for a generation, or 7 years in Scotland.
Imagine if we had a referendum and the vote was no. Everyone there was a murdersomeone would post gloating saying told you should of voted yes
Yes - and we know what the result would be. That's why we won't get one. "They" know better - we are idiots.
No, but its time to get some sensible judges and sentencing needs to be updated with ALL crimes carrying a minimum sentence.
No, whilst I would like a return to capitol punishment it should never be done as a knee jerk reaction.

Maybe time to review the soft Judiciary and some Chief Constables Policing tactics though.
No referendum will ever be given. After Brexit refused to give the 'right' answer the Public will never be asked again.

I can guarantee the result would be a massive ......YES.
I think it may surprise you gulliver, I heard it was more like 45% in favour.

I hope Boris doesn't read this post , it will give him an idea on how to TRY and win the next G/E.
Personally I'd settle for life meaning life.
"I hope Boris doesn't read this post , it will give him an idea on how to TRY and win the next G/E. " - have you seen the opposition gully? He doesn't have to try.
No, but how about giving these people a choice - take this 'pill' or spend the rest of your life locked up for 23 hours a day?
I am assuming this question is a troll, just for a change.
I agree with TTT, life should mean life, and full sentences should be served. Yesterday a man pleaded guilty to the rape and murder of an elderly woman after he broke into her home. This poor woman would be alive today had the man served the full sentence for a previous rape of an elderly woman.
This is a link to YouGov showing opinions on whether the death penalty should be used in various categories of murder

yes I'd support that, arrods, give them the choice.
Terrorist should be PTS. Hanging is ridiculous these days. They should be PTS because of the potential they have to radicalise others while in Prison. The argument against is perhaps because they would become martyrs and encourage others to 'die for the cause'. That can be easily resolved by denying them a religious funeral, which for them would be a fist-class ticket to Hell (in their beliefs).
Gully your thread had the making of a decent debate till you once again obsessed over Boris

Arrods @ 10 .10 not sure about given a choice , after all the victims didn't have a choice.
Terrorists see themselves as warriors for a cause - I'd give them an appropriate end - a firing squad.
