[2012] EWCA Crim 135

A minimum term of 18 years' imprisonment imposed on an offender following his plea of guilty to murder and the imposition of a life sentence was not unduly lenient. Whilst, to reflect the significant premeditation, the starting point should have been higher, the failure to adopt a higher starting point did not render the sentence unduly lenient.
