THERE is one last chance for our discredited justice system to do right by brave PC Andrew Harper.
That is for the judge to give a life sentence to the three smirking, remorseless, wicked deadbeats who killed him.
Our hearts go out to PC Harper’s widow Lissie. We cannot imagine her pain.
It was stomach-churning for anyone, let alone her, to see these thugs snigger over his horrific wounds.
To watch them gleefully hug as they cheated the murder convictions they richly deserved.
To endure the smug cheers of their family. To hear claims that their friends hoped to intimidate jurors.
To learn that one juror was discharged for getting friendly with the killers.
These criminal parasites robbed a copper of his life in the most shocking and brutal circumstances and felt no shame. Their callousness beggars belief.
They will doubtless walk free before long and our courts will have failed yet another victim and his family.
The Sun would never let these creatures see the light of day again.
We hope Mr Justice Edis feels the same.
IT is remarkable that retail sales bounced back nearly to pre-Covid levels last month.
Yes, it’s mainly food shopping, online sales and DIY. Most High Streets are still deserted.
And retail is a fairly tiny slice of the economy. Even so, the rise is far more than experts forecast.
And business activity is surging too.
Maybe mandatory masks will revive our town and city centres this weekend.
It’s not much yet, but there is hope.
IN his war on junk food, Boris Johnson should beware junk policy.
We all know the nation is too fat. But it is crucial to tackle it with the right tools.
We are glad the PM binned the sugar tax. But other desperate nanny-state measures, like banning buy-one-get-one-frees and certain TV food ads before 9pm, won’t cut obesity either.
Most of us have no idea of the calories in our grub. So label everything, including takeaway menus, and ensure everyone knows their daily calorie guideline.
Greater knowledge and more information will work where bans and price hikes fail.
IT’S smart to vaccinate the nation for flu.
There’s no sign of a second Covid wave. But there would be mayhem if it struck this winter with wards full of flu patients fighting for life.
The priority is young kids and OAPs. But the Government is right to roll out free jabs for over-50s too.
If that’s you, get one. Don’t let the anti-vax conspiracy theorists dissuade you.
Boris is right about them. They’re nuts.
