I tend to avoid political talk on this blog - there's nothing I could add that hasn't already been said by someone with a far better grasp of the situation than I - but that story in recent days about the three lads who met on an incest chatroom who plotted to rape two young sisters really riled me up.
They were given indeterminate sentences with an 11-year tariff for Beavan and eight-year tariffs for the other two.
Cunts! What the fuck is going on with the laws in the UK and Ireland? Why can someone get 20 years for attempted bank robbery (a crime the bank's insured against, in any event), but only get five years (and be out in three - that's this year that this babyfucking animal could be back out) for raping a 13-month-old baby?
If the thought that those bastards will even be let out of prison without being chemically neutered isn't enough to piss you off, consider John Reid, the Home Secretary, and his response to cracking down on paedophilia:
Sex offenders could be forced to register their e-mail addresses and chatroom names, the government says. Home Secretary John Reid said he may make paedophiles put online identity details on the Sex Offenders Register.
Oooh! If we know their email address they'll never do anything bad online again! This is the equivalent of confiscating a child's cigarettes, then giving him money to buy more when he's leaving the house.
I was aghast when I heard this. I thought people only got aghast in Agatha Christie novels, but fucking aghast I was. What a stupid, dimwitted, cuntish proposal. The BBC have a "computer expert" commenting on the foolishness of Reid's comments, but let's face it, you don't need to be a technical genius to know it takes three minutes to create a brand-new online identity. Who do you think leaves comments on this blog? 30 different Kavs, that's who.
Solipsism aside, Reid's competence clearly needs to be brought into question if this is how he proposes improving how we track paedophiles.
Castration, I'm telling you. Any cunt who carries out these sick acts is psychologically damaged, and THERE IS NO WAY TO REHABILITATE THEM. If that sounds harsh, please go ahead and prove me wrong, but no human rights bullshit, thanks.
Here's a proposal for you John: if someone sticks their dick into, or otherwise sexually abuses, ANYBODY, then they lose the right to their balls. Let's see how many repeat offenders we get using that approach.
Mr Eugenides sums this up much more succinctly than I.
Oh, and The Devil's Kitchen also tears him a new one. Splendid.
