TV-row inmate: It’s not Butlins
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.”
