Dear Mr. Cameron
May I suggest that as a punishment for all these hooligans on our streets you put all the criminals into nursing homes and allow the nursing home residents to go into prison.
This way us pensioners would be able to make ends meet, have free unlimited access to central heating and hot water, medical requirements and hobbies. Each of us could have secure furnished rooms equipped with our computer, TV and radio and be allowed free daily phone calls and all this with the benefit of constant video monitoring so we could be helped instantly should we fall or need assistance.
Our bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing ironed and returned to our rooms. We would not have to shop for food as all our meals would be in house, delivered to our cells. We would be relieved of finding the money to pay for all the increases in our bills.
We know we would be allowed family visits in a suite built for that purpose. In addition have access to a library, gym, swimming pool, gardens education and spiritual counselling, should we need it.
Sadly this enormous change would result in the criminals getting inferior food, being left alone all day unsupervised with no computers and internet access or free phone calls. However, they would get a weekly bath and hardest of all they would have to pay the enormous sum of between £700-£900 a week for these privileges – but no doubt you would find a way to subsidize this for them.
Also on another subject Mr Cameron, whilst writing I would like to know the real reason why we can no longer have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse or in Parliament. Is this because you cannot possibly allow commands such as ‘Thou shalt not Steal’, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery’ and ‘Thou shalt not bear false witness’ to be visible in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians in case someone is offended!
May I suggest Mr. Cameron that as a starting point to correcting all that is wrong in our society, you pass a law that all schools teach the ten commandments in an effort to re-educate our society in the basics of respect, discipline and morality, and that you stop worrying about offending people of other faiths or no faith.
I feel sure Mr. Cameron, that if you could see your way to implementing some of these changes, you would be assured of the grey vote at the next election.
