In Court today, after watching former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith on BBC's "Question Time", a self-confessed bank robber claimed:

"Yes. I did it. I've apologised, and I'm sorry. It wasn't my fault. I blame the system which never told me it was wrong to take other people's money. I don't have to pay it back, because it was the system's fault, not mine. I didn't start out with the intention of robbing banks, I just wanted to help
people (especially myself) but the opportunity arose, and I took it.

Instead of being punished, I should be rewarded for my honesty in apologising for my mistake. The system should be changed, to tell people what they can take, and what they can't. Now I should just be left alone, to get on with it."

He was sent to the big house, for life.

Make Lord Peter of Haven Valle's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
