Mairead Philpott appeal to be televised
Last updated Fri 29 Nov 2013

Mairead Philpott's appeal of the length of her sentence is to be televised.
The law was changed to allow cameras into the Court of Appeal last month, and today's case is set to be the most high-profile to be broadcast so far.
Philpott is appealing a jail term of 17 years for the manslaughter of her children in a house fire in Derby last year.

It's to be hoped the Appeal Court will increase the derisory sentence handed down to this woman who should be kept in jail at least until she is no longer able to reproduce.  

Life with a minimum tariff of 25 years will do more to reassure the public that judges are compos mentis than knowing she'll be released while this century is still in its teens.

Oh I agree absolutely. 

What on earth must she be thinking that she would expect a lesser sentence - its truly unbelievable !

Very interesting arguments by her QC, to do with her total domination by MP, and suggesting that this was not given enough weight.
Similar dominating control of a man over a woman which may yet be argued in another place.

Good Grief, just as I was thinking criminal's right is way over valued in this country, then the verdict was already had and case closed.
Talking about speedy process ha...can't get better than that!
Why did this even hit the News? Waste of time IMO.
