1,000 prisoners, it gets worse

Surely Charles Clarke must be considering his position. It now seems that 288 of the “lost prisoners” were released after the Home Secretary was made aware of the problem last summer. Perhaps this is why he was so subdued in the media yesterday and so unwilling to use the “it was before my time” defence that I was expecting.

I have been thinking about this situation and I cannot understand how an error of this magnitude could have happened. Do these people not have personal files which contain their notes? Do those files not have the words “Asses for deportation” stamped in big letters on the front and if not why not?

Rather than lecture people like me and the media about describing the current Home Office as ineffective and draconian Clarke should concentrate on doing his job.
