At long last, Britishland is building a new (and large) prison somewhere in Yorkshire. Predictably, all the NIMBYs are screaming and shouting because “eyesore”, “ugly” and so on.
This is the kind of thing that drives me mad. On the one hand, it’s obvious to even the most stupid people (e.g. liberals) that Britain needs MOAR PRISONS because MOAR CRIMINALS. However, why build the thing in Yorkshire (which is quite pretty, in parts)? With about ten minutes’ search, I found a far better location: the (uninhabited) island of North Rona. Here’s where it is on the map:
…and here’s what it looks like:
Yup: over 200 acres of fuck-all, what better place to house criminals? Remote, cold, windy… hell, on second thoughts why build a prison at all? Tents, that’s the thing. Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and a dozen Mexicans would have them up in a few hours, job done, ship a couple thousand convicted criminals in (I’m thinking bastards like this one) and wave good-bye. Don’t even need prison guards, so ongoing savings.
You can be damn sure that the mortality rate would allow for fresh shipments of assholes on a monthly basis, when the food supplies* are brought in.
And when the liberals start their predictable squealing about Krool & Hartless Treatment Of Misunderstood Yoofs… we substitute them for the criminals.
All in favor, say “Aye”…
*Bread, water, dog food, you get my drift.
