The murder of Welsh honymoon couple Ben and Catherine Mullany on Antigua is all our fault according to their PM. Us and the Septics are to blame.

Because we have been sending Antiguan criminals back there at the end of their prison sentence

The prime minister of Antigua has named Britain and the US as partly to blame for a spate of violent attacks which have "nearly overwhelmed" the Caribbean island, including this week's shooting of a British honeymoon couple, Benjamin and Catherine Mullany.

In a televised address, Antigua and Barbuda's leader, Baldwin Spencer, asked for Scotland Yard's help in reversing the rise in crime over the last 10 years, which he called a "threat to our very survival" due to its impact on tourism - the economic lifeblood of the island. He said Britain and the US shared the blame for deporting hundreds of convicted criminals to the region.

"Antigua and Barbuda has long been a nation of law-abiding citizens and residents," said Spencer. "In the past decade, however, we have been nearly overwhelmed by events of crime and violence that are alien to this part of the world."

So far this year, ten murders have taken place on the 108-square mile island, which is home to fewer than 80,000 people. There were 19 killings in 2007.
*Linky*

I am sure you will all join me in offering profuse apologies to the PM and people of Antigua for sending their criminal scum, murderers and rapists back where they came from.

Clearly we should have set them up in a nice waterfront cottage in, say Bradford upon Avon, or Frome. Let them do a spot of fishing. Then Welsh couples could enjoy their honymoon in the sun without the fear of globe trotting criminal nutters blowing their heads off.

Before I email Antigua High Comissioner Sir Ronald Sanders on ronald@antiguahc.sonnet.co.uk to make my apology on behalf of the British people, I wonder if anyone has any helpful suggestions as to what we might do with time-served Antiguan criminals upon their release from prison?

He makes an interesting point about the impact of deportation and its impact on small communities. Also we do have to ask ourselves, is non-citizenship enough to suspend our social responsibility towards an offender? Oh sorry, its the naafi. I'm outraged! Lovely white couple cut down in their prime by savages!

Duke. It's good to see someone in this country at last facing up to their responsibilities to the rest of the World.Baldwin is right. Our judicial system has failed to rehabilitate their criminals.
Now if we can just accept responsibility for Global Warming, the food crisis, the price of oil, Darfur, Rhodesia, the Tusanami among aother things then we will be back in track for putting the Great back in Great Britain.
I salute you sir .....etc

Isn't that what the government normally does?

You forgot slavery.
Time for a return to real justice, try hanging a few serious offenders.

Slightly off-topic (i.e. non-rant) but it was reported that the bloke who got shot was an Army cartographer before going back to uni. Poor lad.

Back into rant: Yes, of course, we're terribly sorry that we send all of your raping, murdering yardies back. We're terribly sorry that we can't punish them further for you.

Agreed with the death penalty. Hang the bastards.

Doesn't seem to have done a great deal of harm to Australia in the long run.
And here were you lot complaining when we Aussies sent the interest back on our startup loan (AKA the First Fleet) :wink:
