r/worldnews – A convicted murderer who helped to stop the London Bridge terror attack last November will have his sentence cut after the Queen intervened. The Ministry of Justice said the Queen had employed the little used “Royal Prerogative of Mercy” to convene the parole board 10 months early.

Interesting that they only used the Royal Prerogative to move his parole date up, and not used it to expunge the crime from his criminal record. After all, the courts prosecute and convict on the behalf of the monarch. Also interesting is that this request came from the Parliament from the highest ranking member of the Government The Right Honorable the Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain Robert Buckland.
