BBC Online – the link between Brexit and the death penalty

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I read this article. The title (the link between Brexit and the death penalty) caught my attention pretty quickly, as did the image of a hangman’s noose. Apparently new research shows that Leave voters aren’t necessarily all uneducated, working class, low income people living in small towns after all. A much better measure, according to this groundbreaking study, is whether you believe in bringing back the death penalty and publically whipping criminals. And guess which voters are in favour? Leave of course! I was going to complain to the BBC about this but changed my mind – if it keeps on churning out trash like this it will sign its own death warrant. I just hope that research wasn’t funded by taxpayers’ money!
