    i don’t want to pay for his round-the-clock care anymore, his family should be doing that – he should be delivered to them this evening, let them look after him

    The State is exacting revenge on Biggs for doing a runner and living the life of Riley .. he’s not a danger to society and he should be freed immediately.

    Hate the hero-worship though, he’s a crim.

    Mind, I’ve still got my original 45 of him & the Pistols belting out "No One Is Innocent":

    "God save Martin Boorman and Nazis on the run
    They wasn’t being wicked God that was their idea of fun.
    God save Myra Hindley, God save Ian Brady
    Even though he’s horrible and she ain’t what you call a lady"

    They, er, don’t write them like that anymore.

    Agreed Mike, but you should have said –
    "even though ease orrible" in your best cockney.

    "God save the Sex Pistols, their a bunch of wholesome blokes"

    The sound on the video was awful, so didn’t do them justice, sounded like they were playing from the inside of a tin can. Well the audience seemed to be enjoying themselves, all two of them. :)

    First to be clear, I’ve never had much time for Ronnie Biggs he right royally took the piss and on the one hand deserves everything he gets. However, given his age (79?), current health and also the fact he can’t possibly be classified as a danger to the public – was the Home Office right to turndown his appeal for parole?

    Considering we now have murderers, child sex abusers, rapists etc seemingly getting out after just a few years this does seem harsh. Has he become a political prisoner, his real crime being – taking the piss in Rio with the Sex Pistols etc.

    .. the establishment is vindictive, mean and cruel.

    No MP’s will go to jail and yet they stole a lot more.

    People forget that someone was actually killed during the robbery which makes him a murderer not Robin Hood.

    Moe, no one was killed during the Great Train Robbery. The driver was hit on the head with an iron bar (most certainly not by Biggs) but died 7 years later from cancer, their is no link to his death and the robbery.

    Ronnie Biggs is a gangster, a career criminal who was convicted for his involvement in a serious armed robbery.

    Instead of taking his punishment like a man he escaped and lived the life or Riley, making amockery of justice and doing all he could to avoid serving his sentence, including impregnating a Brazilian woman in an attempt to avoid extradition.

    How much concern did he show the victims of his crimes?

    As far as I am concerned he has only served a third of his thirty years sentence, that is not enough.

    Do I care he is a decrepit old man, not in the least – he made his bed he can lie in it. As far as I am concerned he can rot in his cell until he has served at least half his sentence.
