Police Scotland to cough 0.001% of annual income for unlawful RIPA spying

In the police's view, merely declaring that Police Scotland had broken the law by infringing the claimants' human rights – namely, breaching the European Convention on Human Rights' guarantees on the right to a private life and to freedom of expression – would amount to “just satisfaction”.

If I get a speeding ticket I think that's the defence I'm going to use. Makes perfect sense, you break the law and because people know you have broken the law then that's your punishment. I think based on this we should just scrap all prisons as we clearly don't need them.

Personally I think the 0.001% could also relate to the one time they got caught.
