Dole and Benefit Cheats getting off lightly

#1
As my previous thread was closed by the MOD due to my cutting and pasting skills, I've just read an article on line from the Daily Mail where a reporter spent a day at court in Birmingham observing people who had commited Dole/Benefit fraud.

Out of 18 cases that went to court non of the individuals were jailed and the majority are having to pay back their fines at a couple of quid a month.

This flies in the face of a supposed Government crack down on said spongers of society. Most claimed although they had lived in the UK for a long period they didn't have the confidence to speak English. Convenience I'd say.......this fraud costs the country just over a BILLION pounds a year.....

SPECIAL INVESTIGATION: Can you spot the dole cheat? Eight of them appear in court in a single day and NONE of them are jailed | Mail Online

Is the link...don't want to upset the MOD again.

It wasn't closed for cutting and pasting. It was closed since this is CA: Current Affairs is primarily for the serious discussion of military-political topics and other matters which may affect us as members of the armed forces.

and the forum description:

Politics, Current Affairs, Geo-Political Analysis. For Daily Mail stories please use The Int Cell!
Has this clicked yet or should I go and fetch some crayons?

If I'd posted the thread in the wrong forum you could have kindly popped into the correct one.
As for the crayon's it's a nice thought but I've just had scoff.

Magistrates' courts tend to have theme days when they usually schedule all one prosecutor's cases for the same day, benefits scroungers aren't prosecuted by the CPS.

Interesting The Mail know the chief beak's name, magistrates usually sit anonymously, makes you think there's been some cooperation and not just penned from the public gallery.

Mary really is Small minded, if she doesn't understand how a woman from a devout Muslim background might not have kept up her English any more than she's probably kept up her school French.

The courts are handing out soft punishments to just about all who come before the beak.Take the derisory sentence handed down to 2 thugs filmed beating the cr*p out of someone featured on today's Mail online.

Of course those who rule(or dictate) to us can expect very soft punishments for expense fraud.

Britain is a failing state mainly due to 13 years of Marxist goevernance from Labour.
