G4S have lost control of HMP Birmingham – a major success for Tory privatisation and Theresa May’s cuts

According to Channel 4 News, G4S have lost control of HMP Birmingham, where around 4 blocks (around 400 prisoners) have been rioting and about one third of the prison is wrecked. They had to hand the prison back to the Prison Service/government who are now in there with riot gear and police.  This demonstrates how successful Tory privatisation of services and prison officer staffing cuts have been, as enacted under Theresa May.
