Prisons full up

Prison population has reached the 80,000 mark and although there are currently 8000 more places being built, John Reid Home Secretary along with the Attorney General and Lord Chancellor have been forced to send letters to judges and magistrates pleading with them not to send any more criminals to prison unless they are the most dangerous and persistent.

Just what sort of justice is this, if the penalty for a particular crime is a prison sentence then surely some attempt ought to be made to find them temporary accommodation somehow (if its any help I have a tent I could lend).

Seeing some of the latest developments in the cash for honours scandal it might just be that senior politicians will be requiring accommodation themselves, let's just hope this problem has been resolved by then, so as their not disappointed.
