It is interesting to read the very wide ranging views on employing ex-offenders.

Compare the decision of a Manchester-based firm of solicitors and James Timpson's comments in his article: http://www.retail-week.com/comment/comment-looking-for-great-retail-staff-hire-from-prison/5068010.article

against others.

Those that take an opposing view: that a public apology is necessary and until then Ched Evans should not have a place in public society are entitled to their view.

The third category: those that threaten violence in order to achieve their goals are not relevant to the debate and should suffer the consequences of criminal behaviour.

In the meantime, Timpsons are achieving favourable comments for their actions and for free dry cleaning for those going to an interview.
