For the most part, criminal behaviour orders are just another way of avoiding the reality that some offenders who are not being put away should be put away.  When every trick and turn considered to be acceptable to a sceptical public has been exhausted the bright young things at the MOJ offer ever more suggestions on how to run a service to protect that public and simultaneously reduce its reliance on incarceration whilst upping custodial limits in  Sentencing Guidelines.  Seems to me that having a custodial cake whilst eating it  hasn`t succeeded in the past and won`t succeed now.  To expand the metaphor this example takes the biscuit.
