image for Britain to reintroduce death penalty

In a back to basics policy change David Cameron, Prime Minister, announced today the return of the death penalty in Great Britain.

"To be fair the death penalty never came off the statute books", he said, "we are just extending the penalties where it applies".

Accountants Price Touche and Watts identified a £1Bn savings opportunity from bringing back capital punishment instead of prisoners serving life long jail terms.

UK Home secretary said "We don't want to impose this, prisoners can either take the electric chair or pay for their time in jail in cash....in advance"

Sentences where the execution penalty will be extended to will include: murder, rape, comedy writing, burglary and saying nasty things about the Royal family or politicians.
