Yes as Ronnie Barker observed when a tin of pineapple chucks was stolen from his cell. "There is a thief amongst us".

Laban,

I can't seem to comment on your excellent 'Children aren't our future piece' so I'll do so here. Have a look at the interesting piece from today's Times

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/columnists/guest_contributors/article4175022.ece

"A study by The Los Angeles Times revealed that 97 of the 100 fastest-growing communities in America supported President Bush, providing him with a decisive 1.72 million vote advantage over John Kerry. Unfortunately for Mr Obama, this conservative majority has grown, thanks to hundreds of thousands of Americans moving from the cold northern states to the southwest sunshine of Las Vegas, Arizona and Colorado - and bringing with them a remarkable fertility rate.

Those decamping to the zoomburbs are choosing to buck the US birthrate by consciously raising large families. Who then vote Republican. According to analysis by Steve Sailer in The American Conservative, the 19 states with the highest white fertility rates went Republican in 2004. John Kerry, on the other hand, carried the 16 states with the lowest rates of conception."

Sorry for length.

I imagine the BBC solution to the prison story is to shut it down, thus (re)moving "the criminal subculture" and putting it back on the streets, where it can be safely ignored.
