ASBOs On The Way Out….

Well, this’ll please most of the judiciary, who were never in favour of curbing this ‘anti social behavior’ in the first place:
the number of people breaching the terms of their orders rose to almost a half. Among juveniles the rate is 61 per cent and among adults it is 43 per cent, according to the Home Office figures. The overall breach rate is now 49 per cent.
I thought the idea was that if they breached, they went to jail...? Oh, but the jails are too full of people caught not paying their council tax or TV licence, aren't they?

Joined-up government at its finest!
