You know why I'm lost on this and where it is ultimately going obviously. The offence is completely stupid and I guess I don't really have any sympathy with the idiot who threw the egg. Warsi dealt with the event in a dignified way at the time. But where on earth do we get a custodial sentence out of this? And it is clear it didn't require him being remanded, but he was and so many actually dangerous people seem not to be.
Then of course we have to remember John Prescott. If you are an idiot for throwing an egg and it warrants 6 weeks in prison, what does punching someone in the face deserve? Two Jags did prove, if any proof was necessary that he is nothing more than a thug. But, after spending a month 'investigating' if a crime had been committed (it was filmed of course and repeatedly shown on television) the police in Wales then decided that no, nothing much had happened. Please tell me what the difference is? Am I at risk of being assaulted by a politician, at no risk to themselves from the law, every time I walk the streets, or just New Labour politicians? Or is it just John Prescott who is above the law?
