Prisoners on license permitted to go on foreign holidays

The Government has changed the rules about prisoners on license being allowed to leave the country without actually telling anyone at all. The change was approved by the prison's minister, Baroness Scotland and came into effect this year.

But they've not gone soft on crime and nor are they not in disagreement about sentencing. Got that? Is it just me or this all getting tragically comical?

It's called Human Righs. I wonder if they send a postcard saying "wish you were here".

Baronness Scotland is a profoundly inadequate individual who commands no respect at all in the Lords.
