I never thought I would be happy with any judicial decision in favour of any of our ethnically-challenged bretheren, but letting Mr Hussein off with battering one of his own half to death with a cricket bat was a winner with me. He should be made an honorary Englishman. But seriously, that creates a great precedent. What do you have lying around the house that could be used to go splat, crump or thud against the laughing tackle of an intruder? Personally I've got a short, weighted pool-cue, thick end first.
