Five years in prison....

Actions that carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison:

Repairing, testing etc. firearm without a certificate
Falsifying certificate etc. with view to acquisition of firearm

Or,if the government get their way, I might be a landlord who happens to be renting a flat or a room to an asylum seeker. And I might decide, when I hear that their request for asylum has been refused, that I cannot be so callous as to evict them just after they have been told they cannot stay in the country. For that as well, they want to give me five years in prison.

We were right to talk about adding a heart to the Conservative party. They don't appear to have one.
