When I read your quotation from McNulty I thought, "Come back, Prescott. All is forgiven." I have a grouse here also with newspaper and broadcasting people who seem often after a trial to cajole the victim's relations into criticising the sentence for lenience, and thus to try to stoke up anger among us ordinary decent folk. It is a shame that Governments seem reluctant to defend the notion of impartial and consistent justice, even if sometimes shaky and not always to everyone's liking, against the Sicilian alternative.
