Prison for sale

The suggestion that prisoners be housed in containers has got a lot of attention, to which debate Not PC and Stephen Franks add  some facts.

Meanwhile the now disused Dunedin Prison is up for sale and the ODT is running a poll on options for what it might be used for: a boutique hotel, backpackers, exhibition space, museum or bar.

I think it would be easy to market it as a backpackers. Young travellers would take a lot of delight in sending postcards home saying they’d spent a night in gaol.

    The one in Napier has the backpackers lining up to see if there are any ghosts.

    The old prison in Ljubljana (capital of Slovenia), has been converted to a backpackers. Pretty cool backpackers but they have no competition.
