That's fine, but those demanding the restoration should consider the logical consequences.
In the event that someone is put to death but is subsequently found to be innocent, they will have been murdered. This is likely to happen - it certainly happened on a regular basis before the abolition.
When such a murder ensues, those responsible MUST, I believe, themselves be tried for murder and executed. It's only fair. It's not just the person who pulls the trigger who is sentenced. I would suggest that those responsible, who should then be executed, are:
- The executioner
- The prison governor
- The Home Secretary (who could issue a pardon)
- All MPs who voted for the restoration of the death penalty
- All citizens who signed a petition requiring the restoration of the death penalty
