A Welsh woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons flew off to Spain, leaving her two children aged 10 and 14 home alone for a week was convicted today of exposing the girls to unnecessary suffering or injury to health at Rhondda Magistrates' Court but the limp Judge did not send her to prison. Her well thought out defence was that the kids were always moaning and she wanted to teach them a lesson.
Crap defence or not it worked. Apparently, in Wales your children have to die before you are punished. I suppose though that it makes life easier for other parents who are planning summer holidays, at least now they can dump their kids at home and not worry about the expense of childminders.
