“Today I am talking to John Cooper QC, a practising barrister at 25 Bedford Row, about the controversy which now rages in the press in relation to the sentences being handed down to rioters and looters. The issue of proportion, parity and comparison with sentences given for so called ‘white collar crime’ by MPs, peers and bankers is examined in detail.”
