Note: be sure to read the extended comments below too.

The Rembrandt, Canal Street, Manchester

In his talk on Tuesday, Ray Gosling mentioned something that I’d heard before. Namely that ‘moors murderer’ Ian Brady met his final victim, 17-year-old Edward Evans, in the Rembrandt Hotel. (more…)

We tend to think that guns, robberies and violent crime in Manchester are modern phenomena. But there was lots of it going on in Victorian times too. Even in Didsbury (heaven forbid).

Theft of cash more serious than taking the life of a father of four?

The justice system in Britain is messed up.

Last year three teenagers (currently aged 17-18) beat a man to death because he refused to give them a light for a cigarette:

‘Richardson punched the 43-year-old victim in the head outside a pizza restaurant on Oldham Road after he refused to give them a light in June last year…

One of the youths then smashed a metal peg from a BMX bike into his face, knocking him to the ground. As his friends ran to help him, the gang kicked and stamped on the kitchen fitter as he lay on the ground.

Witnesses described them kicking his head as if it were a football…

Mr Sutherman, who had four sons and was originally from Singapore, was taken to Royal Oldham Hospital but later died from a head injury.’

All three admitted manslaughter. One has been sentenced to six years, one to four years and one got nine months! Bear in mind they will probably serve only half their sentences.

Meanwhile, a bank cashier who helped conmen steal £279,000 from comedian Harry Hill has been convicted of conspiracy and sentenced to four years in prison!

Her defence counsel said she had never received, been offered, or asked for any financial reward for her actions and that she did it because the gang threatened her family.

So here we see what is looked on as being really important in Britain today — money, not a human life. I feel so sorry for that man’s family.
