OK you lovely people, can anyone answer me this question please. I too am on this prison journey with a husband inside the nick, and I am in to prison reform and so on. Can anyone answer me this. Why are there people like magistrates on the IMB ( Independent Monitoring Board ) when it is they who bang people up in the first place? Do they like having a nosy of where they are locking up at or something? I am not going in to who or anything like that, but trust me, there are magistrates who are sentencing people to prison and are bloody two-faced to join the IMB!!! Sorry but it's a bit of a pi*s take if you ask me!!!
