ON SALE FRI­DAY AND SATUR­DAY DO­ING HARD TIME! Pris­on­ers given Vi­a­gra pills

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By JON LIVESEY

PRIS­ON­ERS who can’t get it up are be­ing given free VI­A­GRA to help fire up their sex lives on home vis­its.

The lit­tle blue boner booster has been pre­scribed to a string of pris­on­ers in Scot­land – at tax­pay­ers’ ex­pense – to en­joy them­selves on day re­lease.

It’s un­clear just how much pub­lic money has been spent on help­ing con­victs shag, but fu­ri­ous politi­cians say that the Scot­tish Na­tional Party Gov­ern­ment has got its pri­or­i­ties “all wrong” and that its con­tro­ver­sial freep­re­scrip­tions-for-all pol­icy needs to be scrapped im­mi­nently.

Neil Find­lay, Labour MSP for Loth­i­ans, said: “While peo­ple with con­di­tions like MS and can­cer are told they can­not get new drugs, con­victed crim­i­nals are re­ceiv­ing lit­tle blue pills so they can ‘en­joy’ them­selves.

Tory deputy leader Jack­son Car­law added: “Giv­ing pris­on­ers Vi­a­gra at the tax­pay­ers’ ex­pense is ex­actly why we need to scrap the SNP’s pol­icy of giv­ing free pre­scrip­tions to all.”

It is un­der­stood that Vi­a­gra has been is­sued to low-risk in­mates at Cas­tle Huntly prison, near Dundee.
