The Conservative MP and now Tory vice-chair of party Lee Anderson is a big fan of bringing back the death penalty.
His support for the death penalty came in an interview with the Spectator, conducted just before he became party chair this week.
Asked if Anderson backed the idea he replied: “Yes. Nobody has ever committed a crime after being executed. You know that, don’t you? 100% success rate.”
Noting that opponents held up the prospect of miscarriages of justice, Anderson said people shown murdering someone on camera should be executed the “same week”, adding: “I don’t want to pay for these people.”
With this in mind a video of Ian Hislop explaining to Priti Patel why the death penalty really isn’t a good idea has gone viral all over again.
