The 45,001

Will the Government be building prisons to hold 45,000 new prisoners in the next couple of years!?!

No they won't - there's no money left in the Treasury kitty (unless they PFI them). I suspect it's yet another headline-grabbing "stunt" announcement that will quietly evaporate in six months.

Despite the crisis in the Home Office, spending has been frozen in the latest round of Treasury awards. I've blogged on the subject of prisons at my all-new blog.

I'm in favour of off-shoring prisons.
