Why our prisons are full … 9 months for sleeping it off in an un-used car park !!!
Sorry a bit off track, but is this where aIl our hard earned Tax is being wasted ??? "The town drunk used to be given a day in the cells sobering up. Now he can be thrown in jail for nine months" B&B with bacon & eggs in jail = £20, and good public relations. 9 months in jail = something like £5,000 per month, and bad public relations. http://www.prisonreformtrust.org.uk/subsection.asp?id=411
