The Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has said privileges that allow prisoners to boast about their "easy life" are "not right and cannot continue".
For too long the public has seen prisoners spending their days languishing in their cells watching TV, using illegal mobile phones to taunt their victims on Facebook or boasting about their supposedly easy life in prisons.
This is not right and it cannot continue.
The changes we have made to the incentive scheme are not just about taking TVs away from prisoners, they are about making them work towards their rehabilitation.
