Capitalism in prison  

Privatising the prison service was a step too far. 

The same as the argument about the NHS,  the budget gets allotted to a company or prison and the management work out the budget. 

Do they make the budget fit the needs of the individual prison,  I doubt it very much, more likely they make the staff and prisoners suffer so that like any private company they can make a profit. 

The government should renationalluse the prison service and re employ or train new staff in a hurry to avoid the recent riots. Bringing staff levels would bring back a level of care the officers used to provide when there was enough of them to do so. 

The government argues that capitalism works to generate business and jobs, but not in this case surely?
