JUSTICE

Our Justice System needs Reform.

It is failing the public. It is slow, bureaucratic and inefficient. It often puts offender rights above victim rights. Some violent repeat offenders commit over 100 offences, yet are still free to walk the streets. Over 75,000 defendants are awaiting trial at the Crown Court. The police are demoralised and the public are losing trust in the system. We will build a common sense justice system that keeps the public safe.


Critical reforms needed in the first 100 days:

Justice tick

Urgent Sentencing Review with Automatic Life Imprisonment for Violent Repeat Offenders.
Those committing second violent or serious offences will receive mandatory life sentences.

Justice tick

Increase the Criminal Justice Budget.
The budget is almost the same as it was 10 years ago. Increase it from £10 billion to £12 billion to ensure more high calibre staff to cut delays.

Justice tick

Change the Definition of Hate Crime.
The CPS and police definition of a hate crime has led to systemic bias. Members of the British public must not be investigated because ‘any’ person ‘perceives’ that a hate crime has been committed. Proper evidence must be required. Enforce existing laws to stop violent, hate demonstrations such as the Free-Palestine marches.

Justice tick

Commence building of 10,000 New Detention Places.
Start expansion in capacity of state built and managed prisons so that life means life for those who endanger the public. Commission disused military bases if needed.

Justice tick

Tackle Organised Crime.
Foreign gang crime accounts for most organised crime in the UK at a cost of £37 billion per year. This includes drugs, people trafficking and money laundering through barber shops, car washes and nail bars. Increase budget for both the National Crime Agency and The National Drugs Intelligence Unit.

Thereafter:

Justice tick

Reform the Child Maintenance Service.
The CMS is failing children and parents. It should be a Mediation Service and means-tested child support for parents who cannot arrange finances. Launch a special division of the family court for maintenance and defaults. Share parental care 50/50 where appropriate. Rights of access for Grandparents.

Justice tick

Stop Child Grooming Gangs.
Systematic child sexual abuse continues unchecked. Child Protection Services needs a dedicated National Agency working with local charities, councils and health services. Upgraded intelligence can identify high-risk children and filter malicious claims.

Justice tick

Tackle Youth Crime.
Reopen High Intensity Training Camps for young offenders to teach basic education, teamwork and values. Military veterans can provide role models. This model worked at Thorn Cross in the 1990s. It is needed more than ever.
