It tells you all you need to know about the unbelievable laxity of the British penal system when we discover that criminals are breaking IN to jail! 

Glyn Travis, assistant general secretary of the Prison Officers’ Association, revealed that Everthorpe Prison in East Yorkshire has been the location where a drug dealer was breaking in at night using a ladder, and passing drugs to inmates through their cell windows. He also sold women’s clothing to a transvestite prisoner. He did this several times, apparently!

" Prisoners receive a wage for being in prison," he said. "They receive a bed, a TV in all cells, Sky television in most areas for recreational use, free telephones, breakfast in bed on many occasions, cash bonuses for good behaviour, and prison staff are forced to deal with them in such a subservient way it’s ridiculous. Prison is no longer a deterrent. It is merely an occupational hazard."

I would phrase it differently. Under Labour, prison has become an INCENTIVE.

"Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime"?

  1. I saw a headline in a shop just a minute ago that said that prisons were so cushy that prisoners didn’t want to escape. lol!

    Mind you that was probably the daily mail too. 🙂

  2. Frank,

    Many of those who write for the Mail should be in prison since they are SUCH relentless doom-mongers! However this story is being carried across the MSM and it is amazing to read of criminals breaking in to jail, you have to admit!
