According to this morning’s news a judge told a habitual burglar that it “takes courage to burgle a house”. I haven’t done it so I cannot comment from experience. I am sure it took a certain amount of guts the first or second time but after that the risk of getting caught is merely an occupational hazard. David Cameron saw fit to comment on the case, so it gives an indication of how insensitive and outrageous the learned gentleman’s comments were.
I wonder how gushing the judge would have been if it was his house and his privacy that was violated?
