Holloway prison

While the British Government is mulling over whether or not to evict MI5 and MI6 operatives from their London headquarters in order to sell the two buildings to Arabs, no such procrastination has taken place over the ‘re-housing’ the 600 odd women prisoners from HMP Holloway (built in 1852), Europe’s largest women’s prison. The land in London is far too valuable not to take advantage of offers from developers to erect houses and flats upon the site. Due to the rise in the value of land, first time buyers who were raised in the Capital and work in it, have little to no chance of ever buying a home in London or the surrounding suburbs. One never knows, perhaps developers of Holloway prison will not only retain the buildings facade, but the interior too, converting the 600 cells into 600 ‘bijou studio apartments’?
