5.0 out of 5 stars Life inside - UK 2014., 14 Sep 2014

Reading this would make you wonder if prisons were in some sort of time machine as everything seems so very archaic. The author has done a wonderful expose of all aspects of prison life and the conditions that prisoners and staff have to endure - which seem to have worsened substantially during the Coalition.
With such drastic budget cuts and severe overcrowding, is it any wonder that there is very little hope for who who end up in jail?
Apart from a few minor typos here and there and a bit of repetition that better editing could have removed, this is a five star book!

This review is from: Wormwood Scrubs: The Inside Story (Kindle Edition)
If you cross out Wormwood Scrubs in this book you could substitute the name of any of public sector jails. The way they have been run is a national disgrace. Lower rank staff would have been sacked for gross incompetence. I hope Angela can have the initiative to push for the reforms that are needed. As a prison officer for twenty years I sympathise with her frustration. I recommend this book to anyone.

This review is from: Wormwood Scrubs: The Inside Story (Kindle Edition)
Telling it like it is, the author outlines her very recent experiences inside Wormwood Scrubs.

Unfortunately, it looks like the changes she suggests will cost money- oh dear, that's not what the MOJ want to hear !

An interesting read.

Let's hope Someone in Westminster is taking note !

The Author and Publisher must be applauded in providing a much needed window into what is happening in the UK's prisons today. With twelve years of experience as a Prison Writer I can confirm that this is an honest and accurate report.
