Prisons: Harvard for Radicals

Great Britain is not short of irritating, scoundrelous, extremist figures. One thinks of today’s Labour party leader, the Trotskyite Jeremy Corbyn, a ‘friend’ of Hamas and Hizbullah; the anti-Semitic far-left former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, recently suspended from the same party for anti-Jewish remarks; or George Galloway, who defended and lobbied for Saddam Hussein and called on the Iraqi leader to conquer Israel and retake Jerusalem. We have had more than our share of self-vaunting and holier-than-thou religious figures, too, notably the string of Muslim hate preachers who tour our universities and mosques, radicalising students and a host of other impressionable and easily-angered young people.

    George Galloway has said Respect has deregistered as a political party because “we support Corbyn’s Labour Party”.
    His anti-Israel stance is a good fit with a lot of Corbyn’s supporters, but will they take him back into the fold?

    Spatchcocks model penitentiary is inspired by the British “glass house” or military prison.
    The Russians are VERY advanced along these lines for those criminals who survive capture and interrogation.
    Abandon All Hope is the byword……and the Lidice redux tactic is the formal lesson which has immense value in spreading the bad news that recalcitrant behaviour engenders.
    Hard pounding indeed….but let us see who can pound the longest.
