"But at every turn the Green solution is an empowerment of government, a collectivization of not only the means of production but of social institutions and a total disenfranchising of the individual. ... One is left to ponder then why anyone could suggest a 'joining of forces' with them? Though there are some superficial common goals, the means of achieving these could not be farther apart."

"The attorney stated that the Constitution says in the Second Amendment that the individual has the right to bear arms; the reverend opposed, stating to do so will allow revenge and dominance.

"The average first-time non-professional and non-violent domestic burglar will no longer be sent to prison, following a ruling by the Lord Chief Justice.
Lord Woolf said the sentencing 'starting point' of up to 18 months in prison no longer applied and courts should impose a community sentence in the first instance."

"But that must be an effective punishment which would tackle the offender's underlying problems, such as drug addiction, he added."

-------
Meanwhile the mere possession of an "unlawful" firearm will yield a five-year prison sentence.
