Big Charlie's Prison Reforms

The Home Secretary, Charles Clarke, has finally decided to do something about our shambolic system of administering justice. No, he is not building new prisons, perish the thought! Under the proposals, dangerous criminals will still be allowed out of jail early, but will be subject to a set of new restrictions under a 'Dangerous Persons' Order'. Hmm. Let's see how well that works. On the other hand, people who have the misfortune to be jailed through a miscarriage of justice will see their compensation cut, in some cases, to nil.

So to summarise, the new reforms are as follows: dangerous criminals will still be allowed out early, and innocent people can now be locked up without compensation.
