    Grubby is being too polite to describe this corrupt, hypocritical institution of decrepit pedophiles. I would much rather say despicable.

    This is about prison labour in the UK today:

    CAPS

    Compulsory labour is a feature of most prison systems around the world, whether it be forced hard labour as punishment, direct 'reparation' for the costs of imprisonment, prison jobs such as kitchen or cleaning work that keep administration costs down or workshop jobs where prisoners manufacture the cell doors and prison bars for the jails that house them.

    However, the modern prison has also developed into a system for generating capital from a section of society that up until now has largely been held to have no intrinsic labour value, the marginalised elements that tend to be trapped on a roundabout of regular incarceration, never to hold down a 'proper' job or become a 'productive member of society'. Thus we now also have in the modern prison system the prisoners who are used to create capital for private sector companies, either through labour in prison workshops manufacturing and packing goods for these companies or those prisoners handed over wholesale to the global outsourcing and security companies that run the private prisons, to do with as they wish, often 'sub-contracting' them out to third party companies.

    The UK should really stop this, and imports from those countries which employ prison, child or slave labour, for the reason that it would be unfair for British workers to compete against them, if for no other reason.

    Hush-a-bye baby, on the tree top,
    When you grow old, your wages will stop,
    When you have spent the little you made
    First to the Poorhouse and then to the grave

    That sounds exactly like the troublesome economic situation here in the US.
