File under: How DO you sleep at night?

[Amnesty International] called on the government to close a loophole which allows execution equipment to be exported from the UK after it emerged that David Lucas, 58, a farmer of Mildenhall, Suffolk, was making the gallows to sell to foreign governments.

His range of execution equipment includes single gallows, for about £12,000 each, and "multi-hanging execution systems" mounted on lorry trailers, costing about £100,000.

...Mr. Lucas stressed that his business was legal.

"It isn't a sick trade at all," he said. "At the end of the day, business is business."

God bless his pea-picking, enterprising heart. On that Awful Day, Mr. Lucas will be safe. God is a Capitalist.
