The Ripper should not be allowed anywhere near parole

Dalrymple writes in the Times against the possibility of parole (now being considered) for Peter Sutcliffe, also known as the Yorkshire Ripper, who murdered 13 women while supposedly suffering from schizophrenia, of which he has now supposedly been cured:

The very fact that Sutcliffe wants to apply for parole speaks powerfully against him. If he had any real feeling for the enormity of what he did, even if he was not quite himself when he did it, he would be content, indeed eager, to stay in prison for the rest of his life.
