"As Britain’s Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith spoke of the need to rehabilitate criminals by offering them worthwhile work to steer them away from a life of crime."
Nice. I would suggest the following to steer them away from crime:
1. Death by hanging.
2. Death by shooting.
3. Death by electrocution.
4. Lucky dip (this is actually death, but of my choosing. This all depends on the mood i'm in at the time).
5. (For Young Offenders only) Daily kickings and mexican bum wanking followed by death on reaching the age of 21 by any of the above means.
Jobs for crims? Jobs are for immigrants. We all know that.
