We have seen the way communities spiral downwards once windows get broken and are not fixed, graffiti spreads and stays there, cars are left abandoned, streets get grimier and dirtier, youths hang around street corners intimidating the elderly. The result: crime increases, fear goes up and people feel trapped. New Labour’s campaign to tackle anti-social behaviour – but also Tony Blair’s wider initiative to end the so-called ‘1960s liberal consensus on law and order’ – has been criticised by many academics as opportunistic policy-making, influenced by the politicisation of crime and criminal justice.

Much criminological scholarship identifies Howard’s ‘prison works’ as explained unilaterally by political opportunism. However, although a product of political pragmatism to a degree, Michael Howard’s ‘prison works’ agenda can also be understood as more than simple opportunism and as projecting directly from his own beliefs about crime and his view on how it best be prevented.
