My last word on this digression from the original subject of the thread, is that my sympathies are always with the victims of viloent crime, no matter how they acted when under immense pressure.

I would certainly never label one of those victims 'a fool', regardless as to whether they stood up to the thugs, or rolled over and played dead.

Victims of violent crime = my utmost sympathies.

Scum of the earth who commit those crimes = no sympathy whatsoever.

Happily on this issue my thoughts are black and white.

While I understand that he has been released on the grounds of compassion, he is still a criminal.
He may not be a threat anymore, but he is and always will be, in some measure, responsible for affecting the life and family of the train driver, who could never live a normal life after the attack.
I agree Margaret, wasn't it the Sun who payed for Bigg's all expensive trip home from exile in South America, they didn't do it out of the goodness of their hearts they did it for exclusive coverage and no doubt put a few quid in the bank for good old Ronnie too

I won't be watching that as a matter of principle. Not only were they violent criminals who beat a harmless man half to death, they were grossly incompetent.
Biggs should have been left to die in Brazil. It's what he deserved.
