What is wrong with watery broth?

The Corrections Department has announced the Christmas menu for prisoners this year.

BREAKFAST: Cereal, milk, toast, spread, yoghurt, coffee.

LUNCH: Chicken, potatoes, carrots and peas; Two slices of buttered bread, One Christmas mince pie
Vegetarian – jacket potato with pumpkin filling

DINNER: Slices of beef and ham, potato salad, lettuce, tomato, hard boiled egg, two slices of buttered bread, milk, fruit
Vegetarian – avocado with mushroom and rice filling.

Oh and the budget for feeding prisoners is $4 a day.

Now, this is what prisoners would get if I was in charge of the prison system. 

Whaleoil Prison Breakfast: Cold thin porridge and water

Whaleoil Prison Lunch: Watery Vegetable soup and water

Whaleoil prison Dinner: Watery thin broth and water.

I reckon a budget of $0.50 per day would be far better for us, who gives a shit about them.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
