I have just returned home from a day in the city.On the Radio 4 news on the way home it was reported that the criminal courts are to be encouraged to release the names of under eighteen year old persons involved in the recent rioting and looting if this is in the public interest.

I cannot see how it can be in the public interest to permanently ostracize and alienate a generation of under privileged and poorly brought up children.

Surely our society can do better than this?
