Prison policy Change

I agree with Ken Clarke on this

“But just banging up more and more people for longer without actively seeking to change them is what you would expect of Victorian England.”

I believe prison is there to protect society. I can not see how defaulting on CSA payments or being an asylum seeker makes someone a danger to society. Driving when disqualified maybe.

Also, there’s to many remand prisoners who are later found innocent. If prison is punishment then it is ridiculous to be punishing people for only being suspected of a crime.

Of course the cases of people awaiting trail for over six months means that we probably need more judges etc.

You know Ken Clarke must be saying something good when The Daily Mail gets Jack Straw to write an article against it.
