Programme on the telly last night about the state of British prisons. As an ex con myself, but not been back for 20 years, I'm glad I cleaned my act up as what a mess they're in now. The inmates are ruling many gaols as there aren't enough prison officers to control them, and drugs are rife and out of control. The last time I was inside drugs were just coming in, replacing tobacco as currency, so no wonder violence is so widespread inside now. But in a way the programme could be a positive thing, as anyone thinking of getting in trouble may just be scared off, as most prisons are hell holes and full of misery etc.
