Points to Ponder

Let's put pensioners in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home. This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they would receive money without paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring so they could be helped instantly, if they fell or needed assistance.

Bedding would be changed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them. A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to them in their cell.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weights room, spiritual counselling, pool and further education.

Simple clothes, shoes, slippers, pyjamas and legal aid would be free on request.

Private secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.

Each senior would have a PC, a TV, radio and daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guard would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.
The "criminals" would have cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised.

Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week.

Live in a tiny room and pay £900 a month and have no hope of getting out.

Justice for all I say.

As I care for seniors, who get a shamefully poor deal, I am inclined to agree with this.
