Prison hulks

BBC NEWS | England | Dorset | 'Costly' prison ship may be shut

The UK's first prison ship for 200 years could be closed unless an expensive facelift is carried out.

The ship, opened in 1997 off Portland, Dorset, is "unsuitable, expensive" and "in the wrong place".

Of course it is in the wrong place - once it is full up it should be going off to Australia not languishing in Dorset. Full steam ahead!

Damn, Tim... and I thought I was old-fashioned.

Sending vigorous youths to Australia again? Don't you ever want to win the Ashes back, Tim?
