Public Hanging of Bastards and Thieves - Gallowstree Common - 8th May

I'm not so keen on ( i.e., I'm in opposition to ) hanging or capital punishment. Especially since I heard the story of John Ellis and the reason he gave up being a hangman

When the gallows trapdoor opened and Thompson fell, the sudden impact of the noose caused her to suffer a massive vaginal haemorrhage. The large amount of blood spilled, combined with the fact that Thompson had gained weight during her imprisonment even while resisting food, led to conjecture that she might have been pregnant, although no post-mortem examination was made. All women hanged in Britain after Thompson were required to wear a special garment made of canvas as a precaution against the problems encountered with Thompson.

"vaginal explosion" was the term I heard in reference to what turned him off his profession, turned him on to drinking until blackout achieved, and eventually trying to end his own life

but, I'd be up for this event if it was Donald Trump in the stocks, and we get to throw "dangerous" fruit ( especially rotten tomatoes! ) at his stupid fat face

I read about this brilliant idea in a book Liza had about a hanging in Russia in late 19th or early 20th century and I don't understand why it didn't catch on. This guy was sentenced to death and some company (I forget which sadly, say it was Colgate Toothpaste although that seems unlikely) paid him, or, one would assume, they paid his family, so that, just before they were about to drop him, he shouted out to the crowd which had gathered "Use Colgate for minty breath and the whitest teeth".

Anyway, I'm against capital punishment, I thought we had agreed that nowadays the sentence of hanging has been replaced by being tied to a lamppost. However I'm assuming that the people who are gonna be hanged here are Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and other senior Tories, in fact it seemed so utterly self-evident to me being as how they are the people who have recently committed numerous blatant crimes and acts of treason in full public view and just generally swaggered around being such annoying gits that they do deserve the brutal and archaic punishment of lampposting that at first it didn't cross my mind that you could conceivably be talking about someone else.

But I had best just check - are you talking about the Tory scum or just some relatively less monstrous person such as a child rapist or serial killer?

If my assumption was correct then, in this case, I would be perfectly happy for the sentence of lampposting to be carried out. And also while they were tied to the lamppost I would think it best if the crowd was allowed, nay encouraged, to fall upon them like a pack of wild animals and, in an act of utterly sickening and entirely sensible violence, to savagely rend them limb from limb and then stomp their flabby limbless torsos into the floor until they were nothing more than a number of blubbery shitstains on the ground. And then sow salt into the ground so nothing can grow there. And then piss all over the spot. And then shit on it. And then nuke the area from outer space.
