BIRCHING IN THE BAD OLD DAYS – AND A FUNNY

How A Birching Was Carried Out Way Back When

I’m not sure when this practice was stopped but The Isle Of man was, I believe, the last authority in Europe to use corporal punishment as a judicial punishment, in the form of birching. This is an actual news report where a police officer explains how the punishment was conducted.

And I Just Thought That This Was Funny

have a great weekend everybody

  1. Ha, I didn’t realise, interesting that the residents petitioned to keep the birch and that crime was low.

    Love the funny lol. Hope you have a great weekend.

    • I did hear tell that the government of The Isle Of Man decided to join the EU because they would have to stop birching as EU laws ban judicial corporal punishment and that they could not do it themselves as birching was popular with the residents of that country and few would vote for an anti birching politician. Whether that is true or not I am not sure Roz. have a good one too.

  2. Two interesting videos. Very interesting of corporal punishment to deter people instead of jail time, community service, education classes, etc. Fine line when it is reasonable to use, and when it is not reasonable.
    Second video: really good! (and the dialogue fits with sex and with spanking)
    bottoms up

    • I wonder sometimes if it would be a good idea to offer an offender the option of CP instead of short jail sentences Red. But I am against having it as a compulsory sentence. The second video was fun.
