Scot flogs hard line on crime

By Jane Hamilton

A SCOT has launched a bizarre campaign to bring back flogging to combat lawlessness.

Churchgoer James Campbell, 55, wants to take Britain back to the “good old days”.

And he wants to base his new society on corporal punishment.

Campbell has placed adverts in local papers.

He is seeking people who want to set up an “alternative system, based on corporal punishment and a course of training in good citizenship, Christian teachings, loving one’s neighbour etc.”

Campbell, 55, of Dunfermline, claims to be worried about falling standards in the clergy and prison service.

But he told the Sunday Mail: “I don’t want any publicity. I don’t want to speak about it.”
