Breaking the cycle - from M (ex prisoner)

Hi. I totally agree with ex prisoners post on prisoner incentives put forward by the Justice Secretary; David Gauke. 
Will incentives for prisoners really work? As an ex-con; EVERYTHING; revolves around money... YES.. even in prison!
Mental health illness is on the rise; the UK is depressed; and the conservative government could not give two **** about the working class families.
The truth? I know cons inside right now who don't even want to be released back in to this society.
David Gauke can attempt to give prisoners as much structure as he wants but most prisoners are eventually released back in to society and where are the prospects?
I wish I could be more positive but the whole sorry state of affairs makes me laugh. But good luck to him and his proposals.
