Re: Max Fine
"There are people in British prisons for stealing sandwiches when they are hungry, smoking a joint or not having a BBC TV licence. Let those losers out and make some space for some corporate criminals."
No there aren't.
1) The law has since changed, the fine is now a certain percentage of global turnover or €20m, whichever is greater. This is the GDPR, you might have heard about it. There is also a criminal investigation happening, which has the potential to result in jail time if the stronger offences are proved.
2) Nobody is in jail for not having a TV licence. People are in jail for not paying the resulting fine. If you don't pay court fines, I don't know of anywhere in the world where you don't end up in jail.
3) A few people were jailed for stealing bottles of water during a riot, and as such were charged with rioting, not theft. You would rarely get jailed for stealing sandwiches, as in never.
4) More or less nobody is in UK jail for possession of marijuana for personal use. The only example I could find was a British man who smoked cannabis in the UK, then flew to Dubai, where we was then arrested. You know, in Dubai.
