I see that collectively as a country we have taken one further step towards being declared insane.

Simon Cremer, who runs a flooring firm in Witham, discovered in October 2008 that one of his staff (Mark Gilbert) had written out a company cheque for £845 to himself and had taken it to Cash Converters.

Mr Cremer decided to take Gilbert to the police station, and paraded him through the streets of Witham with a cardboard sign which read:

"Thief. I stole £845 am on my way to the police station."

Gilbert admitted to the crime, and was let off with a caution.

Can you guess what happened to Mr Cremer children?

Yes, that's right, he was charged with false imprisonment (a case which collapsed in December 2008).

Roll forward to 2011, and Mr Cremer has ended up having to pay £5K compensation and £8K in court costs to Gilbert (who was to sue him for "distress").

Mr Cremer felt that he had no option but to settle out of court, as the fees he expected to incur would have been in the region of at least £25K.

I have said before on this site that bringing back the Stocks (and their equivalent) would be an effective means of dealing with certain types of crime and anti social behaviour.

Had Nanny followed my policy, Mr Cremer would not have had to pay out £13K.

  1. This story must go hand in hand with the prison that has been ordered to say sorry to an inmate, whose cell the prison staff searched and found illegal drugs in.

    Keep the population scared and confused then they are easier to govern whereas, a well educated and confident population are likely to ask difficult questions.

    Crime pays, doesn't it? As MPs (or at least most of them) have found out.

    At one time in this country, as in any civilised society, it was the criminal who was punished. In the brave new world of common purpose it appears to be the victim, except, of course, pensioners who cannot afford to pay their council tax, in which case they come down on you like a ton of bricks. Gilbert should not have received one penny in compensation, but been punished properly, as Ken suggests. Mr Cremer is the one who ought to have been compensated. As for the prison
    'guest' whose cell was found to contain illegal drugs, he should have been prosecuted and had a few years added to his original sentence, to be served consecutively, not grovelled to. The words of a certain pop song from the 1980s appear to have come to fruition: "The lunatics have taken over the asylum"! At the very least a question needs to be asked, "Whose side are the judiciary on?" Certainly not ours! We should have elected judges and magistrates, as they do in the U.S.A, accountable to the British people.
