Busman’s Holiday

It’s getting around to that time of year again, when the annual holiday needs to be planned. But where to go? There are so many choices these days, unfortunately to get the best of a holiday you need to be sure that the hotel is able to suit your every need, and that costs.

This year though, I think that I’ve cracked it. This hotel has breakfast in bed, satellite television, free phone calls, friendly and attentive staff, hospital and dentist on site and the best security around, and all for free! They actually pay you for staying there, as long as you behave! What a bargain! What’s more they have hotels country wide. The name of this amazing hotel? H.M. Prisons!

Our prison system is now such a joke, criminals are trying to break into them.

“There’s a classic case in Yorkshire where members of the public were climbing over the prison walls to take drugs into the prison.

“They put up ladders to climb over the walls, but prisoners were so comfortable in the environment they were living in that none of them tried to climb up the ladders and escape.”

Well, why would they? Normally only the filthy rich can afford such comforts.

“It tells me there’s something wrong in society when people are breaking into prisons to bring in drugs and prostitutes but the prisoners are quite happy to stay inside.”

Personally I’d say that it speaks volumes of the prison service, where were the guards? Do they call them guards now, or is it Prison Welfare Attendants?

Criminals today probably see prison as a great break from work, a place to unwind from the stresses and strains of their everyday pilfering and nefarious life.  Except for the drug dealers of course, for them it is a busman’s holiday.
