Question time from HMP Wormwood Scrubs..
Possible question David..
'ere - when you gonna let me outa dis place?
Other more likely questions could be.. If the aim of prison is to punish and rehabilitate - If I'm rehabilitated - why am I still in prison?.. e.g 'I knew from night one i'd never wanna return - job done.. can I go now?'
Can a sentence be so long that it cancels out the actual rehabilitation part and languishes solely in the punishment zone - causing anger and anguish - and breaks family ties?
Do we need to invest more in prison education?
Should all prison education and access to education be standardised?
Is prison necessary for non violent offenders?
Should we jail mothers who have been coerced to become drug mules?
