  1. Great stuff from Rob Allen – warning us it may get worse – as those in favour of focusing on rehabilitation would term ‘worse’ – if there is another ‘right wing’ government.

  2. Good analysis of the issues re Transforming Rehabilitation. There can only be a massive increase in the prison population as the chaotic under 12 months sentence people get breached for non-compliance. Much better to offer voluntary help to this group. As well as those in and out of the CJS people ike Chris & Vicky Huhne will get statutory intervention when they don’t need it.
