    17 years?

    For burning someone to death?

    Proof if proof is needed that the bleeding heart liberal idiots in charge of this country have gone mad

  2. Cody says:

    Can the Police Commissioner clarify how many times a complaint of domestic violence was made or a conviction against this man was dealt with before this happened? He will do less than 9 years in prison, then be out on licence – this poor woman has paid with her life.

    • Ralf says:

      9 years then out !.
      I didn’t realise that and looking at his string of previous convictions he’s unlikely to change his ways

  3. Peter Church says:

    The new Vale slogan for Barry

    Barry: its not as bad a you might think.
    (at least the money we extract from Penarth Helps)

  4. david kerslake says:

    He should be put in a derelict house doused in petrol and set on fire save us keeping this excuse of a human being
