BORIS Johnson was dumbfounded as he schooled lags filch drugs in KINDER EGGS adult their bottoms during a debate of Leeds prison.
The PM looked both repelled and confounded when a jail officer showed him an X-ray of an invalid on a physique scanning machine.
The officer talked a PM by how inmates smuggle, or plug, prohibited by stealing it inside their bodies.
A confused Boris exclaimed: “A Kinder egg? So is that inside? He’s ingested it?! He’s plugged it?!”
Moments after when a ensure told him tobacco was pressed inside a chocolate treat, Boris said: “You are joking?!”
The PM arrived this morning during Leeds Category B jail this morning as he denounced another £100million to ascent jail security.
The uninformed money will compensate for some-more airport-style cat-scan machines to stop drugs and weapons bootlegging as good as mobile phone jammers.
It is partial of a jumbo £2.5billion splurge on renouned new crime-fighting initiatives, that also embody toughening adult sentencing and 10,000 some-more jail places.
The final PM to publicly visit a Category B jail was David Cameron, who was shown around West London’s Wormwood Scrubs in 2012. Mr Cameron also visited Category C-rated HMP Onley, nearby Rugby, in Feb 2016.
Theresa May didn’t step feet inside a jail during her 3 years in No10. Ahead of today’s jail visit, a new PM said: “We can't concede a prisons to turn factories for creation bad people worse.
“We will stop a drugs, weapons and a mobile phones entrance in, so we can guarantee victims, strengthen staff, cut assault and make a prisons scrupulously versed to remodel and rehabilitate.”
“The open contingency see probity being done, punishment being served and feel protected.” Only 25 of a 122 prisons in sum in a UK now have cat-scan machines.”
A YouGov check final night found 75 per cent of Brits support Mr Johnson’s hurl out of larger stop and investigate powers. The figure enclosed 93 per cent of all Tory voters, and 61 per cent of Labour and Lib Dem.
But it has led MPs to think Downing Street is personally formulation to go to a nation in a Autumn to boost a PM’s wafer-thin Commons infancy of one.
As Mr Johnson also reason a rapist probity limit in No10 yesterday, a Justice Secretary insisted a moves were not “election talk”.
THE Tories are removing tough on crime, and not before time. Our streets increasingly feel like a Wild West.
Criminals need to know there’s a new policeman in city — and between them, PM Boris and Home Secretary Priti Patel are positively laying down a law.
Boris’s announcements — some-more cops, some-more jail places, harsher sentences and correct stop and hunt — have annoyed a common squeals from left-wingers looking for something, anything, to beat a new PM with.
But it’s about time we started giving military a confidence, a resources and a powers to reason a Thin Blue Line.
It is loyal that too many of a prisons seem to have turn factories that simply make hardened criminals worse. It is also loyal that some immature offenders don’t go behind bars and would advantage instead from honestly tough village sentences.
So as good as ensuring a streets are safe, a Government contingency get to a bottom of a jail problem.
It is probable to do both. And a winners will be not only typical industrious families, though a communities many influenced by crime.
The latest critique is that these announcements are only electioneering. Maybe so. But if this tough proceed breeds results, we don’t mind.
And nor will common-sense Brits.
