It must now be quite evident that British judges live in a different world than everyone else. We here apparently judge people, people like the jihadis, possibly Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, you name it there must be hundreds if not thousands of similar people with similar ideas, we judge them on terms that pertain in our present timid, shallow, ‘woke’ society. These people, jihadis or whatever you want to call them are criminals, simple as that. If you cut off somebody’s head that is murder, and in the first degree. I don’t care whether that happens here or there. Helping to hold the knife makes you an accessory to murder. This is very difficult to understand for UK judges. Sipping the afternoon sherry a bit too much they pick up a Mills and Boon romance novel and swoon over memories of their first fumble under the elm tree on their estates. Then after a few more sherries they remember reading about a land called Utopia and lo and behold their judgement springs forth like a ray of moonshine whilst werewolves howl in the distance.
If you think reading this I had a few sherries, you might be right, trying to drown my sorrows.
