Prisoners should be allowed to blog

Prisoners should not only be allowed to blog, they should be encouraged to do so. Why?

First it opens up Britain’s gulag to the public, so what is going on in a public institution is in the public domain.

Second, it seems an excellent way to get prisoners to improve their writing skills, computer skills and to have them reflect on their lives. All of these things will help them when they eventually leave prison.
