Not As Nice As She Looks

This interesting article caught my eye because
he was ordered to appear in court on December 3 charged with displaying contempt towards a public servant, an offence which is punishable with a prison sentence of up to a month and a €10,000 (£8,700) fine.

It goes to show how wide La Manche still is. If contempt towards a public servant was an imprisonable offence here, we would need a lot more prisons - perhaps ten times as many.

Still - there are a few regulars on this blog's comments who might benefit from a month in chokey.
