Let us compare this sentence with those given to the MPs who stole from us with fraudulent expense claims. These were men who were in positions of trust. They didn't steal whilst drunk, but over several years. Most of them were sentenced to about one year in jail.
I might also suggest comparing Elgan Edward's sentences to those given to the greedy bankers who caused the financial crash. After all, if the riots had lasted months they could not have caused a tenth of the damage to the country as the City of London managed.
Unfortunately, no comparisons can be made. As far as I am aware, no banker has been jailed.
