On 1 March 2019 in Prison – Kick Into Election Long Grass I stated:
“I note with interest that there is an attempt to kick the application for a new Full Sutton prison into the long grass until after the ERYC election on 2 May.
Various avenues are currently being deployed. While others are on stand by.
So ends the nod and wink.”
Time has now proved this to be correct.
Second Nod And Wink
I also stated – “I am firmly of the belief that the planned new prison will not be built.”
I stand by that statement. Will it be two out of two for Strangeway?
My position remains unchanged. When it finally does go to committee I will request refusal.
