Privatisation For Probation service

This is another Government joke
Stand by G4s
Stand by Police to clear up after them

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity,
and I'm not sure about the former.

I can't see how private enterprise can run any department of the government for less than it is costing now. All this shows is how vastly over manned and over funded these departments are.

I heard Grayling (whenever i hear the name of the justice secretary I remember the somewhat corrupt homosexual prison governor in the TV series Bad girls) he carefully sidestepped the question as to who was to be responsible for reporting whether an offender had reoffended, by going on about how serious crimes (killings and sexual assaults) would still be handled by non-privatised staff. So it looks like that, in most cases, the firm who gets paid for keeping an ex-con from reoffending will also have a large part in determining if he has reoffended. Good Conservative thinking that is
