‘Death penalty should be considered’

I could not agree more with Mr John Atha’s letter of Express June 27. Any government who has the guts to tackle bringing in capital punishment would get a majority vote.

The taxpayer has spent £14m on keeping vile Ian Brady for 40 years. What a waste of money! If the death penalty was enforced surely it would deter most of these terrible sadistic crimes. Let the people decide.
