How did he let a 15-year-old girl talk him into that?
Far too complicated. The question needs to be rewritten as follows.
30 into 15 gets you:
a) 2 [ ]
b) 0.5 [ ]
c) Five stars [ ]
d) Up to 7 years [ ]
e) Don't know [ ]
Winner gets a school outing in France.
Or ... School maths problem : 30 into 15 gets you 5½ years prison.
We're sticklers for accuracy !
One of the best subs this year! Well done.
I wouldn't go that far CC. Its a variation of a joke that does the rounds every time a teacher gets caught. Doesn't mean its not funny though.
I wonder what game he'll take in at the end of his term ?
Doh, I didn't think it was totally original.
Damn court cases it's like all the Stuart Hall jokes that were recycled this week, we 'd had them when he was arrested.
I know. Curious thing, though:
- Stuart Hall got 15 months for sexually abusing 14 young & obviously unwilling children, and he'll be out before his next birthday
- Forrest got 66 months (and loss of career and job prospects) for sex with 1 willing girl just under the age of consent. I appreciate there are other very serious crimes involved because she is/was underage, but in my mind Stuart Hall was substantially worse, mainly because of the sheer number of children.
Both very unpleasant situations, but are the punishments balanced ?
[edit: also, Forrest got a load of folk worried but no-one was actually hurt. Hall has scarred at least 14 people for life]
Can't help but think that in some parts of the world Stuart Hall would have had his knackers chopped off and Forest and the girl got married.
I agree with Sinnick on this crazy imbalance. It feels like the more column inches you get in the press, the longer your sentence as opposed to have anything to do with proportion or common sense.
(Good headline though)
