I agree totally, but prisoners do not eat in the Clink!!

It is for member's of the public and staff who pay.

Thank you for pointing this out. This story leads us to believe its the prisoners who are eating top rate meals. Perhaps Clink should take over the catering in many of our hospitals and age care homes.
