The further insanity of the Home Office

Some recently revealed statistics ...

  • Home office to spend a few years, and many millions of pounds building 8,000 more prison places
  • Home office does not know how many prisoners are actually people with mental health problems who should not be in prison; but some estimate that it runs into 10's of thousands
  • Home office admits to 10,000 prisoners (out of a population of 74,000 or so) are illegal immigrants awaiting deportation.

Go figure...
