Knife crime capitulation
DuRINg this knife crime epidemic, it’s the government’s job to protect the public from criminals, not go soft because the prisons are full.
We can spend billions on a highspeed rail link to save a few minutes, but we can’t afford to build new prisons to lock up mindless thugs.
Don’t politicians realise what messages they are sending out, not only to the knife thugs, but also in the damage to our tourism industry because of the Wild West tag? MIKE CATTERALL, Accrington, Lancs.
