I'm no Home Secretary but...

...if the story in today's Times is true about 42 people having been caught trying to break into jails in the last five years, isn't it reasonable to assume that a certain number must have evaded detection. Are they still there? Have they come back out? Have they been released?

  6. The last thing our overcrowded prisons need is people breaking into them when the clientele are already crammed in like sardines. You’d think it would be relatively easy to trawl an enclosed environment like a prison and net the culprits. I presume they’re low-level drug dealers, minnows in criminal terms and the authorities have bigger fish to fry.
