Vicky Pryce discusses her experiences in prison and her ideas for change with the Governor of HMP Barlinnie, Derek McGill.
Vicky Pryce was an economist tipped for high office, until she accepted driver’s licence penalty points for her then husband: that led to a conviction for perverting the course of justice. Her imprisonment led her to write Prisonomics, a searing analysis of the economic and human costs of incarceration and the efficacy of prison as a means of effecting social change. She discusses her experiences and her ideas for change with the Governor of HMP Barlinnie, Derek McGill.
