Of course, but I wasn't a deranged 10 year old as those 2 obviously were.

Ten is too young, for sure, but haven't got a clue how the court should've dealt with those two. Having to deal with a few really warped teenagers at the moment and it's clear that whilst their not right in the head the backgrounds of those kids has had such a major impact on their behaviour its almost like the parents should be held acountable every bit as much as the kids.

Watching it now and it makes your skin crawl.

As bad as those boys were, kelvin mckenzie has a lot more to answer for, as does his employer at the time.

For me, the kids should have got treatment to try and repair them, but that would be some jump in the we run things in good old engerland.

The fucking tories 'used' the case to the last as well

yep, just a pair of rambunctious scallywags really. maybe crossed the line with this one, but for sure kelvin is the real villain of the piece.

Yeah I sometimes whimsically think that too when the whole sordid affair is brought up....

Following sweden’s lead is pretty much the wrong way to do anything.

Hmm. Basically a 60 minute apology for the treatment of those two poor little boys.

Fuck off.

Not sure it was that poopers, but no one can deny they were nothing more then 10 year old kids themselves and to subject them to the full might of the adult justice system was wrong from the off.

And anyone who thinks Rupert Murdoch and his servant mckenzie haven't done a lot more damage needs a head wobble.
