Privatise Prisons and cut frills say report

Privatise jails and cut frills: report – 06 Sep 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

An independent report into how the Government could save money when building prisons says that privatisation of prisons would provide a significant opportunity for cost-savings.

Their main recommendations are less pretty landscaping, having prisoners share toilets and privatisation of prisons.

I bet if Oswald and I got together and built a prison it would cost a fraction of the amounts the government is currently spending on prisons, and if we ran them further substantial savings could be brought to bear.
