ONE way to guarantee the red mist among ordinary citizens is when convicted criminals demand their “human rights” from prison.

Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper and now 65, is, unbelievably, demanding his state pension because he says he paid his taxes while he was working.

He’s even planning to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.

As well as being an insult to the families of the 13 women he brutally killed, we taxpayers are already picking up the tab for his incarceration in Broadmoor Hospital and, presumably, also funding the legal aid he’ll need for his appeal.

The depressing thing is that in our mad PC-world he’ll probably be able to do this, and get his £137.35 a week — which should immediately be taken off him to pay for his keep.
