Conservatives 'not soft on crime' says Danny Kruger
Danny Kruger, a former speech writer for David Cameron wrongly credited with the hug-a-hoodie phrase, denied the Conservatives had gone soft on crime and he was "all for the principle of punishment".
Now running a charity working with ex offenders, he said that punishment does not always prevent reoffending, as he reviewed Justice Secretary Ken Clarke's comments on sentencing.
