Owen Jones is wrong to argue that Vicky Pryce shouldn’t have been locked up
Vicky Pryce – who has ridiculously claimed that “most women are jailed due to men” – perverted the course of justice in lying to the police in 2011. She is now on a book tour and for Jones to call her sentencing a “tragedy” is just ludicrous.
A self-proclaimed socialist, Jones continues that many “powerless people” are also wrongly locked up before delving into the “racism” of imprisonment. Frankly, this wishy-washy nonsense is shameful journalism and just as sensationalist as anything that he’d no doubt accuse the Daily Mail of printing. The truth is simple: Vicky Pryce did the crime and she, like her husband, deserved the time.
