Offering a comment on the justification for sentences, this work refutes jurisprudential attacks on the propriety of mercy, and discusses the shortcomings of the Court of Appeal's approaches to consistency and other principles of sentencing. The appendices list ""guideline cases"" and definitions of ""seriousness"" for the purpose of different statutes.
