I Told You So

I take no pleasure whatever in passing on this report from The Guardian. The Government ploughed ahead with what it thought were crowd-pleasing measures to keep 'dangerous' offenders in prison and they have now run into the iron Law of Unintended Consequences.
It remains to be seen if a Brown government will be as eager as Blair was to pander to the tabloid mob. Something radical is going to have to be done, and soon. Let's see if anyone in Whitehall has the guts to face down the baying tabloid pack.
