It's very unusual for any Prime Minister to make a speech about prison reform, let alone a Conservative one...

Landmark announcement

Yesterday (8 February 2016), the Prime Minister made a very unusual speech.

Unusual for any Prime Minister.

Very unusual for a Conservative Prime Minister.

Unusual because it committed the Government to reforming our prison system – which is considered to be pretty low on most voters’ list of priorities.

Below you can see a full account of the Prime Minister’s speech and a very broad range of response.

I will be adding to it over the coming days, so check back to see new comments and criticisms.

  1. Another government scam to flog off public sector assets to private sector chancers. Go the same way as TR, a complete mess.
