    The difference between zero and reasonable doubt is pretty esoteric in practice though, in a legal sense. The whole point of 'reasonable' doubt is that any doubt would be unreasonable, ergo far fetched, fantastical, ridiculous etc etc

    Being British does not make you immune from punishment. She was found guilty of a crime she committed, that's about rules her out of a getting help beyond advice from the consulate. As much as I also disagree with it, those "cunts" have every legal right to execute her.

    MI6 and the SAS don't start wars to break criminals out of prisons, are you thinking of gangsters and hollywood films?

    The legal system is willing to convict people based on eye-witness reports or jail house snitches. I think their definition of unreasonable is determined more by the system than by the reliability of that evidence, in the real world as opposed to how it's been built up by decades of jurisprudence.

    I'd anticipate only a very, very small number of people would ever fit the criteria. I'd also be inclined to only apply it to war criminals and the like. Seeing someone cop a life sentence for killing some kids is bad enough. A life sentence for orchestrating the annihilation of ten thousand people is another.

    This thread seems to have moved beyond the opening post but I'll answer anyway: I'm a socialist with a caveat. I grew up in a country where I saw socialism working: admittedly now you can buy more things in the supermarket but I think free healthcare and education and cheap public transport are great things.

    However now I live in a country that suffered from badly implemented socialism in the 60's. Although that said I'm not sure if the country is that much better off now with foreign companies plundering its natural resources for pennies but hey.

    my thoughts on politics are this.

    I know the current government are doing their best, the cuts are coming think and fast. We probably should stop giving spain 10 billion each year and he's using the EG vote because you know this.

    I strongly support the construction of a worldwide Jainist theocracy.
