I only found out yesterday that A.Pierpoint was not the last hangman. It was somebody called Harry Allen. Pierpoint carried out the last hanging, Allen was in residence after him :D but didn't hang anybody.

 

Well I'll be hanged :wink:

There wasn't such a thing as a last hanging in Britain. Two men were hanged at the same time on the same day,one in Manchester and the other in Liverpool. The scouser was innocent of course as per usual.

 

No, he wasn't a scouser but this is a joke topic isn't it ?

Of course, we do still have the death penalty on the statute books for (I believe) treason and setting fire to HM dockyards.

 

So there can't have been a "last" hanging while we could still have another one.

High treason ceased being a capital offence in 1998. Actually the last person to be hanged for high treason was William Joyce (Lord Haw Haw) in 1946. Strange subject to be discussing in Jokes and Quizzes so I will suspend it right away :wink:

Feel free to do anything you want in this country safe in the knowledge that if you are found out I and others will be paying for your temporary life of luxury in one of HM holiday camps until such time as a "dogooder " decides that you have suffered enough of HD Premiership Football, Film Premiers and WII and that you should be allowed out to re-offend and start the process again.

came across this on virgin media page.

 

violent criminals at risk of reoffending could now be hit with Asbo-style orders.

 

New violent offender orders (VOOs) will place a series of restrictions on dangerous offenders after they leave prison.

 

Courts in England and Wales can insist the thugs stay away from named places, events or people for between two and five years.

 

Anyone under an order must tell police if they move home, change their name or leave the country.

 

Breach of a VOOs, a form of civil order, could lead to a further jail term of up to five years.

 

The Home Office said the orders were aimed at "disrupting patterns of offending behaviour".

 

Anyone who has served a sentence of a year or more for offences such as murder, manslaughter or GBH is eligible.

 

Police can apply to magistrates courts for an order if they believe an offender will commit another violent crime.

 

The orders, which were contained in the 2008 Criminal Justice and Immigration Act, are part of an updated Home Office violent crime action plan.
