UK giving prisoners cash handouts


Moon Monkey

Recommended Posts

Oh foreign prisoners of course not locals. A british prisoner is given 46 quid relocation cash, plan is to give foreign prisoners 2500 quid packages in the hope they go home and stay there. I would have tapped this on the end of another thread like the 140 million given to help 70 people off heroin or the 500 million quid reading programme that actually resulted in a drop in reading standards but it just sums up what is going on and deserves its own:

So bet these guys rejret that they just walked out:

BTW if you have your sentence cut due to overcrowding and get out early you get extra cash:

There are even examples of prisoners electing to stay in jail:

and who can blame them as alongside, tv, pool tables etc. newly built, privately run prison facilities include full size floodlit football pitch, 5,000-book library and state of the art gyms.

I am actually starting to see the funny side of it all

Actually I think this story puts the plan into context:

As does the 730 quid paid by each and every single taxpayer to bail out northern rock

Sorry for making this a private thread but it seems our fantastic government blocked a private rescue of Northern Rock a week before committing 23 billion of taxpayers cash:

In my local paper Liverpool Echo, yesterday it said youths on ASBO's and from troubled families will receive £40 a month pocket money, ok, so the bad kids who go out cause nothing but trouble intimidate old people get a reward for behaving this way, so what about all the decent law abiding kids, what do they get? sweet F.A, then on the local radio station people were phoning in because the local council cant afford to repair a building where kids and adults go with special needs yet the very same day the council finds 2.5 million to refurbish a mosque from 1890, by the way the building isnt in the style of a mosque and was formerly council offices, just shows how the priorities are all wrong,

TEENAGERS who refuse to work, attend training or go to school are to be issued with on the spot fines under government proposals. Any who still fail to comply would then be taken to court where they could face further penalties.

The measures are designed to enforce a new law which will be outlined in this week’s Queen’s speech. It will say that all teenagers must remain in education, training or employment until they are 18.

The change will be phased in by raising the age to 17 in 2013 and to 18 in 2015. Details of the new “age of participation” will be outlined by Ed Balls, the children’s secretary, in a television interview today and in a speech tomorrow.

The new law will effectively outlaw “Neets”, teenagers and young people who are “not in education, employment or training”. In a speech to the Fabian Society tomorrow, Balls will put the proportion of Neets at about 10% of 16 to 18-year-olds.

On today’s Sunday Programme on GMTV, he will argue that the change is “the biggest educational reform in the last 50 years”.

Balls will admit that Britain performs poorly in terms of the numbers of teenagers who drop out of the system at the age of 16. In international league tables, he will say, Britain is “pretty much at the bottom, despite the rise in participation we’ve seen . . . the vast majority of countries have more people staying on [after 16] than we do”.

The first group to be affected will be today’s 10 and 11-year-olds and the change is likely to provoke strong arguments. When Brown first put it forward in July, a senior union figure, Geraldine Everett, chairman of the Professional Association of Teachers, said that the move was a “potential mine-field” that would “compel the disaffected to, in their perception, prolong the agony”.

Frank Field, the Labour MP and former minister, wrote in last week’s Sunday Times that a group of teenagers in his Birkenhead constituency “rolled around laughing at the idea that any government could try to lock them up in school until they became 18”.

To provide places for the teenagers, Balls will announce the creation of an extra 90,000 apprenticeships by 2013 for 16 to 18-year-olds to add to the current 150,000. There will also be 44,000 new places at further education colleges.

one story tells how their giving money to kids who cant behave, now we have this story of if children dont wanna work they will be fined for not working. i think im going slightly mad :w00t:

well at leat the mosques are ok :lol:

Ed Balls...you made that up didn't you ?

Another 'new labour' program, keep rolling them out, keep spending the cash and then bury it as deep as possible when the results are disappointing. They can always be press ganged into the army...no only joking but if they don't want to continue education, training or employment then screw them, don't give them anything, let the parents support them and watch them b**** and moan when unqualified immigrants take 'their' jobs.

BTW I still don't know why so much of the UK is so scruffy when we have 4 million people watching daytime TV and picking up cheques, surely some of them could be picking up litter instead

The Government should run factories and other businesses for people who leave school, so they finish School on the Friday and on the monday as a class they start work in one of the government factories paid the minimum wage for their age and stay there for 24 months and then they can either find other work or stay on at the government run factories, it would get rid of this yob culture and learn them what work is all about, it would cost money but surely the government would make that money back in the long run, give the young people a decent living and responsibilities,

Great debate after the Queens speech today, Lame Duck Brown had a nightmare,,,,I really liked his new slogan "British jobs for British workers", he must think we are really, really stupid.

BTW I heard today that because 'new labour' have redesigned all the constituancy boundaries the tories need a 7.5% swing at the next election...Thatcher only got a 5% swing in '79 and the dead and rubbish were piling up in the streets at that time.......the UK is in long term trouble.
