The Radical Reforms our Prisons Really Need

Reece Coombes

As a 16-year-old member of UKIP with a cardboard Nigel Farage cut-out in his bedroom, Reece is hardly your bog-standard student, but he cherishes his independent thinking as his greatest strength. Reece is the founder and owner of Kipper Central, a UKIP community blog with thousands of daily hits and is also the Deputy Chairman of Young Independence, UKIP's youth wing, where he works hard to promote Brexit and radical thinking to young people across Britain.

    1. You don’t pay tax, you’re a child.

    2. Drink driving is not a minor crime, it’s a life changing crime that can kill.

    3. Halal meat isn’t torture, it’s a religious requirement. Feel free to look up what happens when our own meat processing plants fail to correctly kill a cow and skin it alive – which happens on a regular basis.

    4. Prison isn’t supposed to be a punishment, it’s supposed to be a reform tool designed to keep criminals away from society until they are safe to return. Treating prisoners badly damages that reform.

    5. As a guard I can tell you that prisons are not fun. You should try staying in one for a week and see how fun it actually is. I guarantee you playing a console and eating bacon won’t suddenly make you want to go back.

    6. What you hear on the media is rubbish. Nobody commits theft just to get in prison for the night. Feel free to source public record proving otherwise.

    7. Without time off for good behaviour, all sentences would simply be shorter to start with. Good behaviour sentence reduction is actually a lack of bad behaviour extension, it just has to be worded the other way to keep t legally binding, and it’s there to help with reform. You wouldn’t be able to put someone in prison for 5 years then add a year because you feel their behaviour wasn’t good enough, you’d get ripped to pieces in appeal courts. That’s why they do it the other way.

    For “common sense” politics, this site sure doesn’t seem to have much sense. You should really try doing some research before posting because most of your posts seem to be based on wild assumptions, most of which have no basis in reality. It’s like you’ve read the front page of the sun and formed your entire opinion from that.
