    Default Life Should Mean 100 Years

    David Cameron considers a life sentence for murder should mean life; 100 years to be precise. For crimes where a life is taken then the most severest of punishments should be applied, and I really don't see why this should be in contradiction with ECHR.

    However, too much of this contradicting of European directives could begin to isolate England, at the least, from full participation in European politics. With Cameron intent on distancing from the ECHR and establishing our own code of human rights, this could run into severe problems if our European immigrants themselves run into criminal difficulties in this country.
    Faced with certain disaster, defiance is the only answer.

    More bluster for potential UKiP customers. In most respects his hands are tied, and that is his get out.
    As a Tory, the fact that by his own admission he is basically pro EU, means he is constantly having to find little bits of deception to appease with. I wouldn't,t be surprised if the Europeans don,t find him somewhat amusing.
    This can not even raise its head unless he wins the next election. And as that must be his first objective, this will help with any doubting Thomas,s.

    Doesn't a 100-year sentence get over any ECHR criticism that indeterminate sentences are wrong? It could always be reduced by a third or so on appeal and not make any substantial difference...
