1 pointI'm searching for photos for my dad (David Halliday) and I believe this might be the same man, he died in an accident around this time down the pit, he taught my dad to play the trombone, any info would be greatly received.
1 pointI do believe that 'young first offenders' should be given the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. Most of us will have done something that affected the lives of others when we were young, naive, and still growing up. I am all for making scumbags compensating their victims but unless the relevant scumbags have bank accounts etc with the funds available to compensate their victims it will never happen as the scumbags will more than likely only deal in cash. So like any fines compensation will never be paid and it will cost the taxpayer for the admin costs to set up and try and collect payments. Plus we will pay for them to be kept in prison so I'm afraid the only solution I could have for making scumbags think twice about damaging any childs education is to use their bodies to fertilise the earth.
