Keep us safe
WIFE killer Robert Brown is a dangerous man who must not be freed from prison.
As it stands he will be paroled automatically in November. Justice Secretary Dominic Raab must not let it happen.
Brown would reportedly be a “Critical Public Protection Case”, a criminal who poses the highest threat.
And today we reveal he was judged too grave a risk for an open prison only months ago.
How can he be let loose on our streets?
It is staggering the ex-pilot escaped with a manslaughter conviction in 2011.
He bludgeoned his estranged wife Joanna with a hammer and buried her in a grave he had already dug.
Since then he has shown no remorse — but every indication he is a misogynist psychopath.
Mr Raab, who meets Joanna’s mother today, can order the Parole Board to review extreme cases.
He must — and the board must put public safety first.
Left in lurch
THE Left’s empty, knee-jerk rage betrays them. They simply believe our capacity for migrants is limitless.
You’d think they might concede that every small-boat cheat is jumping the queue ahead of a genuine war survivor.
They don’t, because Labour would just accept all-comers. Neither the vast cost, nor the impact on our communities, housing or NHS bothers them.
Or indeed touches them.
Keir Starmer — “free movement” champion — denies Labour still backs open borders.
Rubbish. His party sees blatant chancers from safe Albania, sailing from safe France with a £7,000 ticket, and calls them “refugees”.
It is laughable and voters know it.
So is France’s demand for huge annual payments to patrol its own beaches when it could end this crisis overnight just by taking illegal migrants back.
The Left’s politicians and cheerleaders denouncing Rishi Sunak’s crackdown as “unworkable” are arguing in bad faith.
They don’t want a solution. They seek merely to virtue-signal their “kindness” — but above all to ensure the PM fails.
For Labour his success is a grim prospect.
AGAINST all sound advice Jeremy Hunt is determined to fleece businesses next week.
The Chancellor says Britain needs the money — and raising corporation tax six per cent only dents big firms’ profits.
But those profits employ thousands of people. Drive companies away to low-tax Ireland and those jobs won’t exist, nor the income tax from them. Brexit Britain will be a turn-off for investors.
Ex-Chancellor George Osborne would CUT the tax, as he did successfully.
Mr Hunt’s shadow Rachel Reeves, though, urges him to resist such “siren calls”.
Coincidentally, it helps her immensely if his Budget proves disastrous.
Doesn’t it trouble him his sole supporter is a Labour politician who wants his job?
