Canterbury Prison is failing to prepare its foreign inmates for life on the outside, according to a report.Oh, dear. What a shame. Why might this be?
An inspection found staff could not see the benefit of addressing the behaviour of prisoners who would ultimately be deported anyway.Well…no. Frugality, and all that, eh?
So why is the Prisoner’s Friend, Nick Hardwick, getting out of his box?
But Chief Inspector of Prisons Nick Hardwick said it was difficult to tell who would be deported until near the end of a sentence and said 20 per cent were allowed to remain in the UK.Ah. Well, since we don’t know which 20% that might be, it seems pointless to squander a potential 80% of prison staff’s effort, doesn't it?
A better approach would be to ensure that 20% were also booted out, of course. Win/win!
