This Is England?
From today’s (British) Times
“TWO teenagers who left a barrister in a coma for three months and permanently disabled with brain injuries after an unprovoked and drunken attack were jailed yesterday.
Bournemouth Crown Court was told that Daniel Hayward, 19, a trainee boat builder, and Martin Warren, 17, had been drinking heavily before they and other teenagers began roaming the streets looking for trouble.”
Also from today’s (British) Times:
The teenager Mary-Ann Leneghan was told that she was going to die throughout the hours of rape and torture which preceded her murder, a court heard today.
The 16-year-old who was stabbed to death in Reading on May 7 last year was abducted by a gang of men and tortured before being stabbed to death, a jury at the city’s Crown Court heard
Ok, so we all know that bad news makes good copy. But still: Britain, what the f*** is going on?
