  1. A cynical person might conclude that the government is predicting the need for these new prison beds because it knows damn well that poverty and their policies will end up criminalising more people…here is how it adds up for me: reduce welfare support in a time of high unemployment then sit back and wait for the stress conditions to generate a predicted 1200- 1500 new ‘customers’ for the newly privatised prison system.


  2. And if you combine the above with the removal of the likes of TVNZ7 that have until now kept us rather more informed than we would otherwise have been…the dumbing down of society is yet another way for government to do whatever they wish without us being properly informed.
