I’m literally astonished by the depths the Conservative party will go to in order to scrabble for votes in this election. There’s no honesty, just obvious attempts to manipulate the electorate. And it’s so transparent. I doubt there’s a single person in the country who believes that the state of the country has declined significantly since Labour got into power. Even my parents have said that they haven’t done too much damage (although they still maintain it’s just a question of time). With this in mind it seems astonishingly crass to use a campaign based around the intimation that Labour’s policies on early releases have caused rapes. Juliet Lyon, the director of the Prison Reform Trust is quoted in the article as saying: “This is scaremongering. The general public deserve full information.” I couldn’t agree more.
