Roll-up, roll-up and support this sane and sensible plan:
Send rioters to the Outer Hebrides for 5 yearsResponsible department: Ministry of Justice
All rioters and looters from the recent troubles in English cities should be banished to the Outer Hebrides for 5 years. This would be much, much, cheaper than keeping them in expensive prisons, saving the taxpayer money. Five years of being forced to live in the Outer Hebrides with none of the comforts of English city living e.g. running water, electricity, decent food, culture and shopping, will put them on the straight and narrow, and frighten them not to riot or loot again. Many local people there look after sheep part-time, so they can earn a small amount of extra money looking after rioters and looters as well.
Out of sight, out of mind. Someone else's problem. Solution found.
It's all very typical of what has caused the problem in the first place - superficial answers that sound good and don't answer the root causes. Indeed, the root causes are to be avoided if there is an easier way to hide the issues; even if the author has his tongue firmly in his cheek.
