Why do Brits want the death penalty?
In the past years I have read several polls from several different outlets and institutions that indicate a rising number of UK citizens in favor of reinterducing the death penalty. Which was abolished in the UK during the 1960s because of a very controversial execution (Bentley case). In one poll the mayority of 58% favored the reinterduction.

Why is that???

There is only one other country in which there recently was a big, but ultimatly failing push to reinerduce it, which is Poland.

I think their needs to be a balance. America way overuses capital punishment. But European countries do nothing to properly destroy sexually motivated murders of children and serial killing. That guy in Norway got what; 21 years? He killed 77 people. That's around 4 months for each kid he killed.

RE: Why do Brits want the death penalty?
A few years ago they introduced E-Petitions. An E-Petition is where you make a subject to be discussed in the houses of parliament and if you get 100,000 others to "sign" it then it goes through for discussion.

One of the first subjects covered was the re-introduction of the death penalty and they threw it out almost immediately.

Like most countries, the population here get heated and call for indiscriminate killing whenever there has been a controversial case like murder, rape, pedophilia etc etc. When the subject gets (very rarely) brought up, I would say that the majority I have spoken to are against it (including myself)

Got any links to these polls?

RE: Why do Brits want the death penalty?
Yeah, the problem with polls is you can pretty much provoke the answer you want.

If you surveyed a group of British people and asked "Do you believe that the death penalty should be reintroduced?", then I would imagine the majority would say no.

If you surveyed a group of British people and said "Here is a picture of a four year old girl. She was brutally raped and murdered by a man in his fourties with multiple convictions for sex offences against children. Do you think the man should be put to death?", then I imagine the majority would say yes.

It's all in the wording.

Here in Canada the Sun is the best news source. It has a right-wing bias, but it is way more impartial than the liberal media.
