The Death Penalty
Today, Wednesday 10 October, is World Day Against the Death Penalty.
A bit of a mouthful but I agree with the sentiment.
Should you wish to sign a petition, you can do so here .
This topic is a bit too polarising for A Curate's Egg so, if you are interested, it is continued on my 'political' blog here.
Trivia: When I went to the site to sign the petition, it was in French (you can change it to English) but it was apparent from the context that the French phrase "la peine de mort" means "Death penalty".
Presumably it is the origin of the English phrase "to do something under the pain of death".
