Bring back the death penalty for serial killers and celebrity murders. But not for reasons of justice, of course - but for delicious public distraction in the case of 'celebrity' murders and with serial killers, gives everybody what they want while saving the tax payers money.

Because serial killers invariably murder for latent attention seeking reasons – and when a celeb killing emerges from an apparently run of the mill murder, they can seamlessly morph into a celebrity event when committed/targeted by beautiful young people and for reasons of passion, estrangement or revenge, while elements of obvious public injustice, police corruption, help – ref Ruth Ellis, et al.

The serial killer would get the attention he/she craves right through to the moment of their own long sought after terminus – while saving the state the bales of money a lifetime incarceration would cost; and with both, the public would have months of heart wrenching, knife edge distraction – from the first moment of arrest, through to the final brief posting, always in the early hours of a damp, grey morning, of the notice of execution, pinned to the dark prison door - as the beastly or beautiful (and hopefully, unfairly condemned) are finally executed with riveting accounts of what they may have had for that last breakfast..! - with the whole nerve stretching business was lengthened while the Home Secretary decides not to stay the execution.

Other elements also fascinate - the discrete arrival of the executioner the previous evening and what he had for breakfast (always the full British) – and who knows, it might even raise the bar on celeb reporting in general, while extending their fifteen minutes – and by then their time in the limelight would be worth itjust to see the last of them..!
