Yes, yes, I know, mistakes will be made and in the grand scheme of things of course, it\’s a pittance.
Prisoners have been paid student grants and loans totalling £730,000 while taking university courses in jail, the Government admitted yesterday.
The figure is almost three times higher than MPs were told last month.
More than a hundred inmates exploited a loophole for a decade to get loans and maintenance grants even though they were already being housed and fed at taxpayers’ expense.
But it does make you wonder quite how much of our money is being pissed away on such nonsenses, doesn\’t it?
