Liz Truss - Unfit For Purpose.
Liz Truss, the Justice Secretary, is putting into law for the first time a prisons mission statement to 'make sure that it is crystal clear what the prison system exists to deliver'. Mail.
The Tories have always talked tough on law and order - and have always failed to deliver. Justice is a package.
Punishment - possibly the most vital component of that package - is a social statement and says that wrong will not be tolerated. It is a moral question, first and foremost, but also contains the vital issue of deterrence!
