Your Say - Wayne injustice.

Byline: Walter Smith, Yardley

I AM very sorry that Wayne Lineker, the brother of Gary Lineker, was sentenced for two and a half years for tax evasion.

While he deserved to be punished Wayne did not cause any kind of physical injury to anyone and he does not constitute a danger to the public in any way.

Yet hooligans and drink drivers who kill and maim are frequently let off with just a slap on the wrist or they get shorter sentences than Wayne Lineker did.

The statue of justice on top of the Old Bailey must be crying her eyes out.
