And if that doesn't work, lock her up and throw away the key.

She's been up in front of the judge more times than I've had hot dinners.

Is that all he got for the list of crimes he committed?
Was the Magistrate related to him to be let off so lightly.

Ironic thing is, had he been caught for speeding on his way to court he would be facing at least a £300 fine. The world's gone mad, as well as the magistrates 😂

what the paper fails to mention in the case of Michael Davis is the cost of supervising his court order requirements, it would be cheaper and more effective to dump him on a secluded Scottish island and wean himself off his drugs, none of this namby pamby nanny state do gooder mentality that inevitably leads to re-offending.
