How the Mailiverse permeates into the world.
http://www.yourlocalguardian.co.uk/news ... prisons/r/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Year 11 students take it for granted that all prisoners get plasma TVs, Persian carpets etc. They begin a campaign for 'tougher gaols'. Teachers accept this as the basis for coursework (is it fuck), local newspaper simply prints it straight.

The message is promulgated and endorsed...

What evidence do they present for rising crime? What evidence do they offer prison life is easier? I can only assume they are locked in their bedrooms for 23 hours a day. Clearly their answer for violent offenders is food rationing, lack of visits and possible hanging.

"Persian carpets" - that's a new one on me. Is it a euphemism for hashish? As in, "Are you going to pop round for a fly on my Persian carpet later?", "Nah, I think I'll give it a rest thanks, I've got a bit of a sore throat after last night, know what I mean?"

Re. the Your Local Guardian comments, "Smudger" seems very familiar, I wonder who that could be? Any ideas Malcolm?

I think you'll find that Malcolm has been barred from most online news sites.

Re the rugs: I get the sinking feeling they mean prayer mats. Whilst some of them are very nice, I'd be very surpirsed if a crim's family would actually risk sending a genuine persian prayer mat to a building full of people who like to nick stuff :lol:

Deanna Hammond, 15, from Carshalton said: "Our project is about whether prisons in the UK are more of a reward rather than a prison.

"We feel very strongly about the issue and feel that prisoners should be treated more harshly than they currently are.
I know they're only fifteen, but I think somewhere along the line, perhaps their teacher should have pointed out that you don't start a research project with "we feel very strongly about the issue" and "we feel that...", it rather dents its credibility.

Nothing wrong with starting out with a hypothesis as long as you are prepared accept the results of your research and adjust your position according to your findings.
It does annoy me that, in that first sentence, Deanna has used the word prison where she means punishment.

It's PSHE, could be being taught by anybody...
But yes, it's abysmal critical thinking, I would die of shame if my students had ever done anything so poor.
I also wonder how this story made the local paper, after all they haven't reported on the kids looking at aid to Africa have they?

Lamentably misguided right-wing sentiments at such a young age :( Still, a few more years, and some of them (if they have a 50 grand trust fund) might get into a uni that'll make them eventually look back on such wretched projects with embarrassing distaste.

Something Mail parents truly squirm over ;)

Just checked out the survey.

"Do you think relatives should be able to visit prisoners?"

I have never seen this raised as a controversial issue by even the most hardline hang and flag em nut right tory grandee.

Given their Hobby subject and their easy access to the press, is it unreasonable to suspect a family link to the worst kind of journalist?
