The rivalry over war and peace, welfare and forced work has been waging of late between the United Kingdom colonizer and the United States of America colonists. The latest, newest source of competition has broken out over the confinement of foreign prisoners.
British penologists have often been criticized for falling a bit short and thus have frequently sought to show that their penals are every bit as big and potent as the stateside penals. As the American penal colony at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has gained notoriety for its use of torture and tropical cache, envious penal watchers in the UK were predicted to want their own large penal colony below the equator. And so Great Britain announced that its GREATNESS required a prison camp in Nigeria that would have more torture and even better tropical conditions than that old communist stronghold in elderly Castro's Cuba.
One UK penologist insisted that Britain would soon have an African penal system which any urologist would tell you is bigger and better than some tiny island Carribean joint!"
