Crime is taken seriously by Ming Campbell
I am pleased with Ming Campbell's approach on the issue of Crime. To quote from his speech:A party which is serious about social justice cannot fail to be serious about preventing crime and enforcing the rules.
I want to be clear: I support the discriminating use of ASBOs in tackling crime and discouraging anti social behaviour.
Liberal Democrats in local government have used ASBOs to good effect.
Penalties should go beyond custody. People like Ian Huntley should not have the vote. If you are guilty of a serious breach of the law, you forfeit the right to elect those who make the law.
