Appalling. Liz Truss, the Injustice Secretary, is no better than her predecessors at not admitting that the obvious solution to prison overcrowding is to send far fewer men to prison. As William Collins pointed out – here – if men were sentenced as leniently as women, five out of six men in British prisons wouldn’t be there. But the government has no interest in gender equality if the beneficiaries would be men or boys, even when one consequence would be far lower costs for the taxpayer to meet.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
