We wuz robbed

It's very simple, Biggs family. Maybe Ron isn't a danger any more, but he chose to spend 30 years on the run in Brazil, laughing his union jack Y-fronts off at British justice, rather than serving his sentence (for a horrific crime) with a modicum of dignity and decency.

The British public - and the family of the driver whom he helped kick the crap from - deserve to see justice being done, and if that means keeping him incarcerated for as long as it takes to make up the time lost while he swanned around Rio, then so be it. Sorry, but that's how the system works.

I've just been listening to Biggs' son, born during Ronnie's lengthy sojourn to Brazil, whining away on the Today Programme. He had some interesting arguments about jurisprudence, I must say. Faced with the irksome question of his old man's marked lack of remorse, he retorted,"This government got no room to talk - they never said sorry about the MPs' expenses, did they?"

A chip off the old block. Let him rot.

Aye, one point with regards slippery Jack Straw. It was him who let a certain South American leave the UK in 2000.

Despite that chap being wanted for crimes by other european nations on various criminal charges.

Jack claimed it was for health reasons, now all of a sudden he is getting "tough on crime"?!

I quite agree with you. He doesn't deserve to be let out. He's only got a few more years left anyway. I'm sure he had a wonderful time Brazil. And now he's paying the price.

Thank God, I thought I was the only one who thought this. I have always thought of myself as a liberal, but that still means playing it fair.

Isn't it funny how he only came back when he needed a bit of free health care...?
