"Women make up less than 5% of the prison population but they are more likely than male prisoners to be serving short sentences for non-violent offences.

These women are vulnerable people & should be only sent to prison when absolutely necessary."

“Prison is especially damaging for women. My Bill would ensure that women are only sent to prison if they have committed serious crimes or pose a threat to the public.” - Daisy Cooper MP

I've never really understood our attitude to the number of women in prison compared to other areas where women are under-represented. We make a big fuss when women are underrepresented in all other areas as they deserve equality and yet here we want things to become even more unequal because women are a special case when it comes to going to prison. Perhaps sometimes men deserve to be the special case? (And I say this as a woman)..

Even the former UK government admits that the UK legal system is mistreating vulnerable people. Can we consider UK prisons to be concentration camps for women?

No, those women committed a crime. That has to be the worst take you have ever had im screens hotting this so anytime anyone even for a second thinks you have any credibility I can instantly prove them wrong.

If these are not concentration camps, perhaps there aren't any in China either.

You still havent explained the point of your original thread which shows you dont understand what the original tweet was about.

The stuff about concentration camps is laughable and I cant believe TSR allows you to consistently post such drivel.

2/10.

We could see it coming, it wasn't very imaginative, and it was executed very poorly.

And since you're in bed with the Chinese government, you ought to know more about execution.

Why are you giving the OP such stick? This is from the offical Lib Dem twitter account.
If anything critcise the Lib Dems instead of China.

I do not understand the Lib Dems point of view. Are they saying women are vunerable and so should not go to prision?
So much for equality.

Also I suspect that if a black male commits the same crime as white female he is far more likely to go to prison.
I know this is true in the states but it is probably true here.
Something should be done to protect black males.

The UK executes its own citizens too - they just do it in countries they have invaded. Drone strikes.

Your the only one trolling.
He has shared quite an interesting link that I wasnt aware of from a reputable source.
I personally did not realise the Lib Dems have such a stupid view on females in prision.

Country kills people in war zones.

Also in the news, water quenches thirst.


Give it up, you're **** at this.
