Crime is a political football - both left and right are terrified of seeming "soft" on the issue, but for all their efforts, or apparent efforts, crime rates continue to rise. Clearly something needs to be done. But what? Peter Hitchens argues that the time has come to re-examine the criminal justice system root and branch - to cope with rising levels of violent crime, and to restore public faith in society's ability to defend itself. Whatever you think of the solutions Hitchens suggests to this problem, you can be sure that they will excite controversy.

About Peter Hitchens

Peter Hitchens is a well-known and controversial commentator, a columnist for the Mail on Sunday and a frequent broadcaster. His first book, The Abolition of Britain, made an impact on both Left and Right with its argument that Britain had chosen the wrong future in the 1960s, and that Thatcherism had not only failed to halt the moral and cultural revolution launched by the Left, but had in many ways accelerated it.
