I watched some footage on TV earlier re: all this prison crisis lark and yes the prison's are short staffed but it is kicking off because of drugs! It will always be because of drugs and as it showed us on TV tonight with drones delivering 'Spice' and so on; it's business as usual as far as drugs are concerned prison or no prison. I'm an ex con and the GOV will only tell the public so much. Well having had first hand experience of prison; kick offs 9 times out of 10 involves drugs/money of some sort!
It's all political bollocks and I kid you not; junkies are required to keep the prison estate ticking over! It will always be about revolving doors and the words; 'prison reform' are comical!
