I suppose he's actually done half his time as he'd have got out after four and half months.

Re: Lord Hanningfield

before he went in

(Note to Strat, he is the one on the left)
Ex-Conservative peers Lord Taylor of Warwick and Lord Hanningfield have been released early from jail sentences for fiddling parliamentary expenses.
Former Essex County Council leader Lord Hanningfield was jailed for nine months in July for falsely claiming almost £14,000 for overnight stays in London.
Lord Taylor was jailed for a year in May for fraudulently claiming £11,277.
It is understood they were freed on curfew with electronic tags, having served a quarter of their term.

Anyone else find the ambiguity of the above amusing?

Re: Lord Hanningfield

Why do these people get let out so early? - Whats the point giving them these sentences if they don't even serve it?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Lord Hanningfield

by letting them out and tagging them, they now have to pay for their own upkeep, as opposed to us paying for them to stay in nick.
