Come down hard on the criminals

Illingworth View



As a 19-year-old lad I can see the changes David Cameron is making to save money are ridiculous. Why cut the army service, the police service and fire crews, putting good people out of work who have lived an honest life?

It will also affect the country in the long run when there are criminals in prison who have millions of pounds spent on entertainment like pool tables and X-Boxes and PS3 consoles. Why can’t he cut all that out? Because it is like rewarding the bad with good things.

Surely a prison should come down hard because, to me, if I went there playing games and watching TV all day I’d happily go again. Surely cutting special forces that we need is a step backwards? Am I right?
