Some inmates serving jail terms of four years or less will be released early to ease prison overcrowding in England and Wales, Lord Falconer has said.

He told the House of Lords it will mean around 1,200 prisoners being released up to 18 days early on licence.

The justice minister's statement comes as the prison population breaks the 81,000 barrier for the first time.

He also said 1,500 new prison cells would be constructed. The extra space will be available from early 2008.

This is in addition to 8,000 prison cells which are already in the process of being created.

The Conservatives have condemned the plan to release prisoners early. Their home affairs spokesman Edward Garnier said it posed a risk to the public.

I personally think this is disgusting, so they are running out of space, who gives a shit, cram them into cells like we used to do with slaves, at the end of the day prisoners are criminals and deserve no better treatment then what we handed out to the slaves, who didnt deserve it.

No wonder there is so much crime, what with the glorified ASBO culture and the justice system being made to look rediculous, Labour have really excelled at encouraging crime.

Australia II - i like it grin

I strongly agree though, I have had a similar idea for years. They should be sent off to the outer hebride's and forced to live with only basic food and water and little interaction with the media (newspapers and radio, but no tv).

It should be policed by army guards instead of private companies and the regieme should be similar to that of national service.

If this were to happen, lets see how many fookers would WANT to go to jail then. And given the changes we see in criminals on bad lads army, lets see how many fookers would re-offend after being there!!

clearly, somethings gone wrong here.

It's no good just locking people away, the government need to target what causes people to turn to crime and this will reduce n the number of crimes commited and thus a fall in the numbers in that need to be jailed.

One of the main reason's there is so much crime is because there is no deterrent.

For most offences, people can get away with just a suspended sentence, and on the odd occasion they get sent down, they have a whale of a time, all their living expenses paid for by the honest, law abiding and hard working public and for a lot of them a better life then they would have on the outside.

It comes to something when a convicted paedophile gets a suspended sentence, and himself admits he should have gone to prison for his crime.
