"On the night of the US election, when political junkies around the world were glued to their TVs, Tony Blair went to bed at 2230 GMT."

Re: So if crimes are down, why is the number of inmates up?
But if they're mostly in jail, being repeat offenders, who are these new people committing crimes and getting incarcerated?

Oh, and
I realize the article sort of answers the question, but there's still a problem there.
