A timely and brave exposure! My thoughts also include the person brae enough to leak this document!

We need to protect whistleblowers and may need to strengthen the Law to achieve this.

Is it not time to go down the American route and privatise a large part of the Prison service. Most especially if we are going to get tough on crime we will need extra places to be built. Private industry is always more efficient than the public sector, by privatising parts of the prison service, we will send two important messages. 1. we continue to support private business and
2. We will imprison those who's anti-social behaviour is a blight on our society.
There is no reason that the private sector could not take over the running of all of our low-medium security prisons, in our first parliament after reelection. Without a doubt the private sector would reduce the overall cost to the taxpayer of locking up our criminals.

This is a draft document and therefore deniable as a statement of intent. Useful intelligence but I suspect that it has been exposed prematurely.

I can tell you that the same thing is happening in the Probation Service. The Government has ceased to increase funding annually, thus Probation Services have to make savings and as most of the budget is on personnel, the number must be reduced!

The people who are to lose their jobs probably aren't the target audience for votes.

I'm not sure with what brown is doing that he intends to have any more elections.
Get the bugger sectioned and get the country sorted.

The Bishop's wine may have gone to his head when it comes to his advocacy of privatisation of prisons.

Convicted prisoners have been deprived of their liberty, as have such other groups as mental people who have been sectioned, and those on remand. I am as greatly in favour of privatisation as anyone, but that cannot extend to people such as police, probation officers, prison officers, judges and any others who deprive citizens of their liberty. The state owes a responsibility to such citizens and must accept that responsibility by directly employing those who look after them.

I don't agree Clive, its a simple matter of efficiency. How much does it cost to keep a prisoner in the UK? A fortune! The private sector could certainly do it for less. I would not expect us to start with the high security prisons but the open prison's are excatly the right place to try it and see if it works. The state owes the tax payer the best value for money as possible. You know the principle is right, lets have the courage of our convictions.

Bishop's wine Oh very drole, its WIN that is the important hidden message in my name.

No typing errors on this thread yet, confusing Mr. Davies with Mr. Davis?

"No typing errors on this thread yet, confusing Mr. Davies with Mr. Davis?"

Now you are getting annoying super blue, who is confusing Davies with Davis, is it that important ? I would have th1ough you would have been the type to support by plans to privatise the prison service. Instead you are obsessing about typing errors and commonly made mistakes by contributors.
Whilst we are obsessing are you an "is" patriot or an "iz" mid-atlantic type. As in privatize or privatise? In either case isn't the meaning the same and crystal clear?

Bishop,

I was pointing out that NOBODY has on this this thread - although plenty have on others. You won't need three guesses for the first one, an individual whose spelling and grammar are always faulty.

The is no reasoning with your type super blue. Every forum gets one from time to time.
All I can offer is that you don't help your own case, by writing incomprehensible sentences.

Have some people had their sense of humour surgically removed?

Surely, anyone else on here will know who I meant.
