Even More Work

In a recent post I criticised the Green Paper which set out the pitiful expectations for prison work. It was then pointed out that perhaps work, even crap low paid work, was better than idleness.

In a past post “Ken Faces the Lions”, I dissected Ken Clarke’s vision for prison work and laid out the reasons as to why they were impractical.

These reasons still hold. Forget decent work for decent pay, there is no way in hell that the government will be able to employ a majority of prisoners in even crap jobs.

I can’t think of any government policy which has aspirations so far divorced from reality, unless they suddenly pass a law which declares World Peace.

    Nice post Ben.
