How am I soft on paedo scum just cos I don't say hang them?

I set out below my position on what I think is the appropriate punishment for various sex offenders.

Rape (zina-be-onf) is related to adultery, has the same proof requirements, and is punishable by death by hanging. In Iran, for most part, convictions are made either by confession or "judge's knowledge", rather than witnesses. 10-15% of executions in Iran are for rape.

In many cases the rape victim settles the case by accepting compensation (jirah) in exchange for withdrawing the charges or forgiving the rapist. This is similar to diyyeh, but equal to a woman's dowry. A woman can also receive diyya for injuries sustained. Normally the rapist still faces tazir penalties, such as 99 lashes and jail time for immoral acts, and often faces further penalties for other crimes committed alongside the rape, such as kidnapping, assault, and disruption of public order.

I actually think this makes a lot of sense.  A rape victim should be compensated with enough money to make her half wish he would do it again.   

3. The return of Capital punishment for Murders, Paedophiles and treason.

4. The Restoration of Corporal punishment for serious violent offenders, persistent burglars, sex pests and drug dealers.

This is disgracefully illiterate ("murders" should be "murderers") and also suggests that quite a few liberal Europhiliac politicians would be in line for execution if the England First Party ever came to power.

For crimes of extreme violence such as aggravated rape, murder and terrorist offences, the National Front would introduce the death penalty.

This is  a bit better.

The BNP will reintroduce capital punishment for drug dealers, child murderers, multiple murderers, murderers of policemen on duty and terrorists where guilt is proven beyond all doubt.
This is closest to my position.

Penalties of hundreds of lashes were imposed for the gravest offences, including sedition and mutiny. The prisoner was rowed 'round the fleet in an open boat and received a number of his lashes at each ship in turn, for as long as the surgeon allowed. Sentences often took months or years to complete, depending on how much a man was expected to bear at a time. Normally 250–500 lashes was when a man taking this punishment would kill him, as infections would spread."

Someone was suggesting that flogging is a bit of a soft option.

Since adulterers and fornicators already get 100 lashes in the Koran, I propose that rapists of adult women get 200, rapists of females below the age of consent get 300, and rapists of girls who have not even started their periods get 400.
