http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7141642.stm You really couldn't make it up. Criminals who are jailed and not fined do not have the "Victims Levy" applied, because unless they are fined, there is no current mechanism to recover money. So it seems that evertyone is blaming yet another computer system for this failure. Is it beyond the wit of man to recognise this and fine all those going to prison even a nominal sum so that the levy can be recovered. Or is there some law that says a scumbag can't be fined if he or she is going to prison?
