Repeal the act that banned the death penalty; this is NOT the introduction of a NEW law.

Violent crime infringes my civil liberties; the freedom to walk the streets safely, live without locked doors night and day, allow children to play freely, not forced to attend schools secured against paedophiles This applies to all of us and regaining our freedom is a War, which Must be won. As with any war, there will casualties; judges, and juries, are not infallible. I am prepared to accept that, even if the wrongly convicted person is myself, in order to see our country free of murderers, sex offenders, drug dealers, drunk drivers, arsonists and all those who kill or otherwise destroy lives. If it takes leaving the EU to do it then good. Many of our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers gave their lives for our freedom, which we cowards allow politicans to give away, while we pay for those who choose to give up their right to life to live in luxury.

Why is this idea important?

Repeal the Murder (Abolition of the Death Penalty) Act 1965

To repeal the 1965 Act removing the right of the courts to impose the death sentence on what were previously termed capital murderers – capital murder being murder committed in the course of or furtherance of theft; murder by shooting or explosion; murder while resisting arrest or during an escape; murder of a police or prison officer or persons assisting them; or two or more murders committed on different occasions.  Aspects of EU law preventing member states from restoring or introducing capital punishment would of course also need to be addressed.

Lets have a referendum on the Death Penalty.

I understand that this subject invokes a great deal of emotion in people, and that most of us will have particularly strong views either way. That said, I have always believed that a referendum has been consistently blocked by the Government because the outcome will be a resounding, "Yes, bring it back!!" A public debate on this issue followed by a referendum is really the only way that this matter can be resolved.

I have never understood why we allow certain criminals to live. The lockerbie bomber for example. He killed  243 passengers and 16 crew members. Allowing individuals like this to live is a national disgrace nevermind letting him go!). When we have cases of parents allowing their children to starve to death only to receive a 7 year sentence then something needs to be done. What kind of country have we become? There is little point in going through every reason as to why we should bring it back, that's the whole point of a public debate followed by a referendum.
