According to a report by the Prison Reform Trust, the government should stop building prisons and invest in treatment for addicts and effective health and social care.
What an excellent idea! This would go some way to compensate offenders for being unlucky enough to be caught and even unluckier to be sentenced.
My thinking is, reintroduce hard labour and capital punishment, then perhaps the prisons would have fewer ‘customers’, allowing some of the existing prisons to be closed down and demolished.
Job sorted, at no cost to the taxpayer!
