Claudie Anglin behind bars over cruise ship plot

Daily Echo: Claudie Anglin Claudie Anglin

A MAN been jailed for over ten years for his part in a bid to smuggle 20 kilogrammes of cocaine into the UK from a cruise ship at Southampton.

Claudie Anglin, 28, was arrested at the port on 19 October 2008 as he prepared to meet four drug smugglers. They were each found with cocaine strapped to their bodies as they disembarked the cruise ship Arcadia which had sailed from the Caribbean.

The four couriers – Camille Dupee, Briony Dyce, Calvin Hylton and Natalie Quinn – were each jailed for ten years and six months after pleading guilty at Southampton Crown Court in December 2008.

They had picked up the cocaine – worth £1.7m – in St Lucia and were stopped in the Customs channels at Southampton Mayflower Cruise Terminal as they attempted to bring the drugs into the country.

Anglin, from Rubery, Birmingham, was waiting to meet the four when he was arrested in a car park opposite the Arcadia.

He was charged with drug smuggling on 3 July 2009 and admitted the offence before being sentenced at Southampton Crown Court today to ten years and six months.

So he will be out of jail sometime in 2014 given that he's probably done 12 months in remand and will be having his sentence halved for 'good behaviour'???

Care to say what you really want to say? Can you be more explicit? Or is it a case of not having the balls? Why not illuminate everyone with your personal philosophy? Rats! Not possible to do that without balls, is it?

I take that as confirmation of an absence of balls. Big men. Tough guys. Stop hiding behind the skirts, Wimps.

Where does it say they are British?
Just jump straight on your bandwagon in your repeated attempts to promote your grubby little agenda.
You should try converting some of your angst,fear and paranoia to a positive kind of energy; you may actually benefit and feel a little happier.

Does it matter which country they are from? The fact is that they were caught breaking the laws of this country, found guilty and sentenced.
.
What is important though, is where are they going to go? The Ministry of Justice has just announced a 20% cut in budgets. This is going to mean a severe cut in the number of Courts and Prisons. They could privatise prisons, but we all know that private prisons don’t work as they staff are paid peanuts and are scared of the prisoners. Besides, I personally disagree with a company making money from criminals (does this not fall under the “proceeds of crime”).
.
We are not going to have the courts to deal with the criminal cases and we are not going to have the prison places to house convicted criminals. Dangerous people are going to be left on the streets to re-offend.
.
The prisons are already overcrowded. A repeat of Strangeways is just around the corner, and with the prospect of these people being left out of prison, I can see there being a dramatic rise in crime and disorder on the streets.
.
This country is going to grind to a
shuddering holt.
.
Not to mention the fact that the staff working in the Ministry of Justice are all likely to go on strike........... it's all going to go pear shaped, and very, very soon!
