British convicts could be sent to Australia again

‘More than 200 years since the first boatload of English convicts reached our shores, overcrowded British jails are once again considering sending their prisoners Down Under.

In a desperate move to combat what has become a national crisis, Prime Minister Tony Blair announced he will do anything possible — including sending convicts overseas — to relieve pressure on the country’s “full to bursting” prison system.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Australia’s High Commissioner to the UK Richard Alston acknowledged the prospect of accepting UK prisoners at a recent function.’
