There May be Trouble Ahead......(reprise)
This report and this one along the same lines looks horribly plausible. Tony Blair lived in fear of lurid tabloid headlines about Law 'n Order, but Brown seems more concerned with the money. Cuts of the magnitude suggested by the leaked document (and that's all it is, of course) would require enormous changes to the justice system. The magic bullet is likely to be a complete recasting of the sentencing regime.
