Just touching on prisoner percentages and nationalities.

To base the British population on the whole population - men, women and children of all ages - and compared this with specific foreign or ethnic groups is invalid. The immigrant and ethnic groupings will have a different spread.

To take just Poles as mentioned above. There will be fewer in the older age groups as parents and grandparents may not have immigrated. Polish workers may not have brought family with them and so on.

You would only get a nearer comparison if you compared, say, white British 18-30 males with the same ethnic/national totals.
