Frighten drunken yobs?

Frighten drunken yobs, say Tories (and Labour say they're already doing it or will be soon).

Bring back the birch, that'll larn 'em. And while we're about it, let's dust down the stocks and put them back up on the village green.

Seems to me scaring people, or chucking rotting tomatoes at them, or chopping off bits of limbs, or anniafrying them doesn't make an awful lot of difference to the crime rates. Learning a bit of respect for other people and property seems to work wonders. Maybe the politicians could work on that new and shocking idea, perhaps with a bit of leadership by example, rather than chopping more bits off the rotting dead horse and saying "boo".
