There’s also been 20+ successful appeals against whole life sentences. So what next? Include life sentences? Because everyone of those appeals the sentence was downgraded to life with a right to apply for parole.

Some are even now free men under the terms of the GFA.That's a different argument to what Brighton was suggesting.
The burden of proof remains the same but the sentencing triggers the death penalty.
