    Default Solution to prisons' crisis: lease the island of South Georgia

    Let's establish a penal colony on South Georgia. Relocate criminals, asylum seekers and refugees from our overloaded prisons out there. Asylum seekers and refugees wouldn't be incarcerated but merely live there. You know, give them a parka and some food.

    Some advantages: heroin is a big problem in Irish prisons, brought in by relatives and guards. It would be more difficult to do in South Georgia.

    No one would bother escape. Where to?

    It would be expensive to manage and guard the prisoners re: human resources point of view. Hire mercenaries and offer to import prisoners and failed asylum seekers from other parts of Europe there, for a fee. Hey presto!

    What do you think folks?

    You don't have to go that far.
    What about the Blaskets?

    Indeed it is. 30 years ago in my neighbourhood, the main source for hash just happened to be a prison officer.
    At some point the gloves must come off and we face our adversaries.

    Not really. I would envision turning the island into some sort of sweatshop factory, where the new colonists would work and generate the revenue which would maintain the system. Every body tagged electronically.

    Failing that, build a hundred prefabs in which each have beds, a microwave, a kettle and a year's supply of pot noodle. Nothing to do but throw snowballs at each other in August. Think of all the prisoners who would detox? We could leave certain people there indefinitely.

    If we turn it into a reality TV show, we would repay our national debt in a year.
