Interesting Fact About Australia #6: Prisons

Interesting Fact About Australia #5 appeared on these pages in May of last year, but you have to go back to 2009 to find Interesting Fact About Australia #4.

So I thought I’d quicken the pace on this ‘Interesting’ series by releasing another ‘Interesting Fact’ today.


Prison 1


Prison 2

Prison 3

PrisonYes, this is an Australian prison. Bad people live here. Well, bad people who have been caught being bad. That’s the idea anyway.

Of course, some people who are in prison will claim they are innocent, or as we English would put it…

I’ve been fitted up guv.’

That is to say that one has been incriminated by the employment of false evidence.

But that’s not interesting fact about Australia #6.

Some of these people in prison are waiting to go to court in Australia to be tried for their alleged crime, others have already been to court and been found guilty.

But that’s not interesting fact about Australia #6 either.

The government likes to refer to prison as ‘adult corrective services custody‘ and yes, you’ve guessed it.

That’s not interesting fact about Australia #6 either.

I could go on and tell you more facts about Australian prisons that are not interesting fact about Australia #6, but I think we’ve all had enough of this banter now. So let’s get to it.

    Haven’t checked your blog since you had to stop writing for a bit. I come back to this scam. Gee, quality has dropped a bit, eh Bob? I’m expecting number 7 to be a proper whopper!
