Re: people caught breaking the law where there are no victims,

When Monty Python joked about "society" being a victim, they weren't.

English common law views "society" as a person - so it can be a victim.

Personally I think that's a load of cobblers as it's just a fig leaf for fascism and a gateway for arbitrary laws - which the UK has plenty of anyway.
