Child Killers To Be Given Full Life Sentences Under New Government Plans
Johnson's plans to ensure 'life means life' will mean that the most violent offenders remain behind bars forever, as confirmed to LADbible by 10 Downing Street.
According to the Sunday Telegraph, Downing Street will use the prorogation of Parliament to relaunch the Prime Minister's domestic policy agenda, unveiling the tough new approach to criminal justice.
The new policy will see murderers of pre-school children subject to whole-life orders.
A source told the Sunday Telegraph: "Most people think all parties and the courts have lost the plot on sentencing. We agree with the public.
"We will act as quickly and aggressively as we can, given Parliament does not want to do what the people want on crime, just as it doesn't on Brexit."
Johnson's administration is also reportedly considering increasing minimum tariffs for other types of killings.

It is believed Johnson will use the Queen's Speech on 14 October to announce the new sentencing bill.
An 'unnamed campaigner' conveniently told The Sun: "This is a good move. Life should mean life.
"Those who kill children should never receive parole."
The Queen's Speech was originally due to be given on 3 September, but Boris Johnson managed to seek permission from the monarch to prorogue Parliament - which meant Parliament would be suspended for a short period before a new session begins. During the prorogation, there are no votes or debates.
Boris Johnson claimed he sought permission to suspend parliament so that the government could set out a new legislative programme in the Queen's Speech, but the Scottish court later ruled the prorogation unlawful - saying he did it to stop MPs scrutinising Brexit.
However, Johnson has since denied that he misled the Queen to secure the suspension.

Having been asked by the BBC whether or not he lied to the monarch in order to obtain the prorogation, he said: "Absolutely not."
Johnson added: "The high court in England plainly agrees with us but the supreme court will have to decide. We need a Queen's speech, we need to get on and do all sorts of things at a national level."
