Surely the argument that, oh well, they've had the kids now so there's no point in prosecuting the couple for their crime undermines the whole principle that punishment should act as some sort of deterent. What about if you said "Oh, well, they got the car back now", would that mean you shouldn't still punish car theives. There are good reasons why incest is against the law - just because they "got away with it" for so long doesn't stop it being an activity that society judges to be harmful

Wouldn't it be nice as well if all parties were more honest about the whole process and made the instructions given by the whip public - http://www.publicwhip.org.uk/faq.php#officials
