Not least because if someone had robbed £300 from my bank account I'd be calling for the death penalty.
but I'm unsure that is a suitable punishment, considering the sort of crap The Daily Mail tells me other criminals get away with

Yeah. Right, 'Times'. The government are the bad guys for locking up a thief and putting 8 children into a system where they'll be able to eat without resorting to crime. The bastards.
Not being funny yeah, but any punishment that results in these children being placed somewhere where they can expect a meal every day is the best one.
If you can't afford kids don't have them.
