No Chance of jail time here

Phoenix Joe has just seen newly released statistics that you are more likely to get run over by a car than you are to go to prison for committing a knife crime in the UK. Which makes no sense of all the NuLab government claims to be getting tough on crime.

Some highly paid incompetent public servant commented "the length of sentences are getting longer - most people can now expect to serve at least 23 minutes in jail, despite the fact that the number of actual jail terms being given is actually falling."

Most offenders are sentenced to something like "please stop being very naughty and if you do it again we are going to be very angry with you!" or "next time we are going to tell your Mum!"

Make Phoenix Joe's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
