five years ago Benchmarking came in which said prisons could run with a lot less staff, VEDS was born and thousands of highly experienced prison officers were paid off handsomely to leave early.
This gave HMP the prisons with a lot less staff that they wanted and since then? Well since then we have RECORD NUMBERS of brand new prison officers with 0 experience whatever. Far better than the hugely experienced prison officers who were paid handsomely to leave.

general election on 8 June

Post by falkor » Tue Apr 18, 2017 5:27 pm

The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she wants to hold a general election on 8 June - three years earlier than scheduled.

"The average of five opinion polls published in April puts the Conservatives on a little under 43% compared to a little over 25% for Labour - a lead of more than 17%. This would translate into a comfortable win for Mrs May's party at an election if that's how people voted.
