What KIND of security do UK prisons actually operate when we read that possibly one in two prisoners in England and Wales use illegal narcotics when incarcerated? That’s about 40,000 people taking drugs in jail at any one time. There is rumoured to be an annual trade of up to £100m going on behind bars with the amazing statistic that 10% of the total prison drug finds in England and Wales come from one jail in Manchester.
I think this is a scandalous failure on the part of the Prison authorities and I do not buy into all this "there’s nothing you can do to stop it" defeatism. It is vital that the law of the land is enforced INSIDE our prisons as well as on the outside and that strict security is the order of the day. But this is just a farce and proof of how degraded our British prisons have become under liberal management.
