At the minute I'm a bit ragey.
I think it might be down to the time of year - dark mornings and dark nights and running round in circles trying to catch up with myself but never quite getting there.
So I have latent rage issues which are probably meant to be aimed at myself and my own inability to get on with things (like cleaning the house before we put the Chirstmas tree up at the weekend. I would actually love NOT to put a tree up at all this year but is that a little Scroogey? Perhaps).
It's always nice, therefore, to find a focus for my rage and today it came from this story on the BBC website.
So a dirty old man, who abused a child for EIGHT years can get out of a prison sentence because he stuffed his fat face for the following 20 years and is too fat for jail?
Must remember that defence m'lud. Anything is excusable as long as you eat enough Big Macs afterward so as to make a stay at Her Majesty's Pleasure impossible for you.
This makes an absolute and complete mockery of the judicial system - and it belittles the pain of survivors of child sex abuse.
He should have been sent to prison, and if his fat ulcerated legs troubled him so then he should just take his damn oil and get on with it.
I have no sympathy for sex abusers, none at all, and it is disgusting that this man is a free man due to his own gluttony.
Shame on the Northern Ireland judicial system.
