I thought the sentence was fair. He moaned and bleated a bit about it. I guess one can't expect much better from a man who directed the evacuation from a lifeboat.

I heard that they only use 12 month old Parmesan instead of 24month, & that Amarone is only served once a week. I can feel a human rights claim coming on. I bet they get to vote as well

Its better than that - they don't actually send them to Jail until 2 appeals have been exhausted first - which can take years!
