I would agree with you summer, but the cost of doing this for all murderers is where the problem occurs. It would cost a minimum of £3,562,500 to do that for him & with 5,500 people also serving a life sentence for murder ( and that increases at the rate of 300 per year), if you do the calculations you will find why no government wants to keep them in for life.
I don't mind paying my taxes, but I object to them being used to keep killers locked up for life, when capital punishment would be a better option for those who's actions have been proved.
This year we will spend £262 million just keeping killers under life sentences, and that is a minimum quote, as many need more than just bed and lodgings & prison officers!
I wonder how many children's lives could be improved with that money?
