Britain to get Dutch prison vessels

It seems that there are only 9 official places left in the British prison system. If you want to get your place before Christmas you had better apply now as the places are in demand. With recreation areas providing pool tables, satalite television, socializing areas and craft workshops places are going fast.

To cash in on this sudden boom in prison tourism the British government unable to build quick enough more prisons to such a high standard will have to make do with a Dutch prison ship. Rooms on these will no doubt be sold at a discounted rate, but the prisoner will be treated to a cruise, stop offs being penned in are Antwerp, Amsterdam and Santander.  Joking of course,  though it wouldn’t surprise me.

Questions may be asked why only last year did Britain sell its only prison vessel the HMS Weare for a paltry 2.5 million pounds? The vessel that was sold had a capacity of 400 inmates, yet the dutch vessel they are planning to buy holds only 200 inmates. how much will this vessel cost has not yet been reported.

“Figures published last week showed a 17 per cent increase in the number of sex offenders, burglars and violent offenders who received just a caution. A total of 350,000 were given warnings rather than being taken to court”(From the Daily Telegraph, here)

It is incredible that such a high number of people are comitting crime in this country and getting away with it. We must be doing something wrong. Surely we should be building more prisons, a lot more, if we are going to be serious about crime. Surely if you commit a crime then you should know you will be punished harshly if caught. This sadly rarely happens though.

People that are terrorizing the streets of Britain today should be punished and punished harshly if they are to ever to learn that their ant-social behavior is not to be tolerated. Of course that would be an infringement of their human rights, or so the looney ‘left-right pushmepullme that is our political system would lead us to believe. How is it that 350 000 offenders were not taken to court?! No wonder the country is falling apart at the seams and we are the laughing stock of the world.
