Brown's Britain

A selection from today’s news stories…

It has emerged that eleven crime suspects whose DNA details went unchecked for over a year have offended in the UK. The data disk was sent over here by Dutch police, and is believed to have stayed in someone’s desk drawer while they were on sick leave.

Doctors’ leaders have claimed that the health and safety of prisoners is being jeopardised by putting them in ill-equipped cells at police stations and courts (bear in mind too that many of these prisoners will not have been found guilty of any crime at this point in their incarceration).

The Public Accounts Committee has found that since the government started spending £800m over the past five years trying to reduce the number of students who leave their university courses, the drop-out rate remains unchanged at 22%.

A murder inquiry has begun after a 16-year-old boy was found stabbed to death in Woolwich, becoming the fifth teenager to be killed in London this year.

Don’t you just love this government ?
