I Thought They Had To Trade Sexual Favours For Phonecards…?

Emergency plans have been drawn up over fears that a prison officer could be taken hostage by Muslim fanatics inside Britain's jails.

The dossier has been compiled in the past few months amid mounting racial tension in the prison system.
Well, try not to keep ‘em all in the same jail, then?
Details of the contingency plans emerged just days after Muslim prisoners at Frankland prison in County Durham claimed they would kidnap and execute an officer and film it on mobile phones.

The threat was made during a four-hour riot in the prison's segregation unit last weekend.

Nine inmates went on the rampage causing £20,000 worth of damage while demanding that they be transferred to another prison.
Why are they allowed mobile phones in the first place? Surely that’s just asking for trouble!

Still, I guess this gives the lie to the 'prisons are demoralising hellholes' and 'families hardest hit by lack of contact with prisoners' memes the left are always spouting.

I presume each jail is required to have ethnic quotas, and to display the required amount of multi-cultural inclusivity otherwise "racial tensions" could be easily removed by simply locking up the different groups in seperate wings.

I wouldn't be at all surprised, sadly...!
