TV-row in­mate: It’s not But­lins

Daily Star - - WIRED -

TUNED OUT: HMP Ris­ley A PRIS­ONER has whined that he only has ac­cess to nine TV channels on his in-cell telly.

The lag moaned that he is pay­ing £1 a week to watch the box at HMP Ris­ley in Cheshire but he is not get­ting the full range of Free­view channels.

And he even wrote to prison news­pa­per In­side Time to com­plain, say­ing: “Why can’t we ac­cess the other Free­view channels and the ra­dio channels? As the name might sug­gest, they are FREE.

“I don’t know if it’s true but I heard a rumour that the au­thor­i­ties do not want child-sex of­fend­ers hav­ing ac­cess to CBBC and CITV, if that is the case then why not just block those channels?

“It is the 21st cen­tury and I am an adult.

“You have taken ev­ery­thing in­clud­ing my right to smoke.”

But an­other in­mate wrote to the pa­per say­ing he was sick of read­ing com­plaints from in­mates about con­di­tions in jails across the coun­try.

The con wrote from his cell in Lin­coln to say: “The first thing I’d say to you is wel­come to prison and not But­lins.”


A MYS­TERY punter from east Lon­don has won £55,089.64 off a £1.20 nine-match foot­ball ac­cu­mu­la­tor. He placed the bet at a branch of Co­ral near West Ham’s ground.
