MP John Hayes on why he wants to bring back the death penalty
UPDATE: South Holland and the Deepings MP John Hayes has told SpaldingToday why he wants to bring back the death penalty for extreme cases and where evidence of murder through filming or DNA evidence is irrefutable.
Mr Hayes said: “I asked a question about the Government considering reinstating the death penalty in response to extreme crimes, but it has shown it is not enthusiastic about it.”
“A significant number of my constituents have always believed that the death penalty should be available to the courts and I agree. Not as a mandatory punishment but in extreme cases such as the Manchester bombing and the Westminster Bridge attacks.
