He may want to make the UK into a little USA however it will cost a great deal more than he thinks .The annual average cost for each prisoner exceeds £43,000. Should he manage in the 3 years he has left in number 10 to convert our nation into a carbon copy of the USA Crime will go through the roof .
If people have no welfare benefits to put food on the table pay bills etc etc many will simply go out and steal it . Armed robbery ,fraud ,muggings ,robbing of old ladies and the disabled will soar . Those that they do catch will have to go to prison but where will they put them? As the prison system is full to capacity now .and at roughly £824 per week to keep a person behind bars where is the money going to come from to pay for all this . They will have squeezed the sick and disabled out of the benefits system by then therefore they will not be able to take any more from that pot as the pot will no longer exist . Oh i forgot all those sick and disabled will then have jobs and be paying income tax (long pause while i drag myself back up from the floor after falling down and wetting myself laughing )
The able bodied cannot find work and if you were an employer and had the choice of employing an able bodied person who is keen to work or a sick/disabled person who will be totally unreliable regarding turning up for work each day as they are ill and many days will be simply too ill to do anything . Who would you employ .
At this point if anyone is going to bang on about financial insentives given to firms by the government to employ disabled people DON'T!!!
What is the point of giving out a sum of money to take back less than that sum you gave out in tax . Looks good on an unemployment &/or disabilty benefits statistical chart for all the spin doctors to quote and preach when in reality they will still be leaking money . Should the prison population rise at its present rate it has almost doubled in the last 10 -12 years . That will mean there will be roughly an additional one hundred thousand (100,000 ) incarcerated people costing the state in excess of £43,000 (forty three thousand pounds ) a year per head just to keep them behind bars . However it may not be so bad as being a disabled person on the outside of the bars at least those on thenow debateable wrong side of the bars will be warm ,clothed and get 3 meals a day but also costing the state £824 a week which is a hell of a lot more than they pay me in benefits or anyone else probably.
Should someone be monitoring this for the governemnt tell Mr Cameron to be careful what he wishes for because if it come s true it will probably turn the UK into the Crime state of Europe .
