Prison - age limit?

Recommended Posts

I heard on R4 today that the prison service in the UK is struggling to cope with an increasing number of aging prisoners with dementia. The oldest prisoner in the UK apparently is 104. Am I the only one to think this is mental?

Should there be an age limit to jail? If so, what?

I hope not. Having watched the ITV series, I'd be better looked after in prison when I retire...

Imagine actually thinking serial killers and child molesters should walk free just because they reach a certain age.

Being an old person doesn't give you immunity from justice, or from being a threat to society.

Do you know what “ diplomatic” means ?

Do you know what "diplomatic immunity" means and how it can be used colloquially as a figure of speech, beyond a rigid literal interpretation?

You have it easy then.

Most homes are £1000 per week.

I'm sure if you try using your brain cells, the two of them will figure it out eventually.

These care homes are nothing but a money making scam, exploiting the vulnerable for a profit.

Some of them try to give the impression of being non-profit charities, but when you look into their salaries, eg for the top management, you soon see it is no different to a business enterprise.

That's a bit harsh. Couldn't you have cut me a bit of poetic licence?
