Former Prison Officer's Damning Assesment Of UK Prisons Today

LBC caller Matthew served as a prison officer for 16 years and he is not happy with the state of UK jails in 2017.


LBC caller Matthew from Newcastle rang Nigel to vent at the lack of “discipline and respect” inside Britain’s prisons in 2017.

“We owned those landings, nobody disrespected us but we also showed respect to the inmates,” Matthew told Nigel.

“It’s a disciplined service and it needs to return to discipline. All this nonsense of televisions, radio and games… rubbish! Lock them up, keep them behind the doors, give them what they’re entitled to, then let them out and start rehabilitating them!”

Nigel asked whether Matthew thought there was an argument for helping prisoners adapt to the outside world while in jail.

Matthew responded: “The prison service is finished. As it is now, the inmates rule the prisons!”
