THE GREAT BANK ROBBERY
The statistics and research papers make clear that in prison they suffer further abuse, learn criminality and most re-offend.
Hearing that HBOS slumped to a loss of £10bn last year and becoming ever incredulous about the wanton greed of those who brought about the international financial crisis one ponders on how it can be that not a single banker is facing charges in this robbery that has taken place.
Could it be that the prisons and judicial system exist to keep in order the fall out from the poorest and the weakest members of society, to prevent the inconvenience of the rich and powerful?
If not, how can a civilised democratic nation continue to allow the degrading treatment of those incarcerated within our prisons and police cells. It is time for change.
