July 2017


Dear Friends of German Comedy,

Rhodri Philipps has been sentenced to 12 weeks in prison for offering £5k to anyone for running over anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller. Mind you, knowing the namby-pamby nature of the British criminal justice system he’ll be out in six. Call me old-fashioned, but 12 weeks should mean 12 weeks.

Public opinion on the sentencing is divided. Some claim if he had been a Muslim rather than the 4th Viscount St Davids (to anyone foreign: this is actually a thing), Philipps would have been given a longer sentence whilst others feel no-one should be locked up for stuff they post on social media.

Sadly both schools of thought are missing the core problem with the story: it makes Britain look like a third world country.

£5k might be an incentive in the sort of places the very people are from, Philipps doesn’t want to see here, but in an industrialised country no-one should commit a murder for any less than, say, £50k. Mad Frankie Fraser would be turning in his grave if he knew about this kind of wage dumping.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the whole affair turns out to be a Home Office ploy to deter foreign hitmen / immigrants from settling in Britain.

Have a great summer

Henning
