And it never worked.
Never had a mobile phone to try it mate, the whole having to hide stuff in your arse never appealed to me.

Default Re: An open letter to Ricky Hatton

Last year pampered prisoners in Perth were allowed to watch boxer Ricky Hatton in a late-night pay-per-view fight.

Jail bosses sparked fury by forking out for lags to enjoy the Hitman’s 4am televised title bout with Manny Pacquiao from Las Vegas.

Last night a Scottish Prison Service spokesman said the Shotts meal will be paid from the prison’s common good fund — which is not funded by taxpayers



^^ Think a couple of people owe Pity The Fool an apology for calling him a liar without a shred of evidence.

Thanks Peter,but I suspect the tone suggests that acknowledging that they were wrong is not part of the general make up.

What do you know about the way LTP's in Scotland work?
Some people don't understand that prison serves two purposes:

1 - to remove persistent offenders from society
2 - to rehabilitate said offenders to make them a useful part of society

It's not about punishing people! I don't see the harm in paying for the commercial PPV (about £500-1,000 or something, I'd guess) as a community treat. Prisoners are still human beings.

It's the BRIT forum after all mate! PACKED SOLID with constipated experts on all things constipated, they even drove all the UK scribes of the forum, so it's a racing cert that "If they ai'nt seen it! Done It! ****ed it! then you ai'nt! If yer get me drift, Ye cast pearls amoungst swine.

2) I've never saw much of that going on

More enlightened regimes see the benefit in throwing in a big juicy bone such as this, common sense to most, but not too all i'm afraid.

It is one thing to support your local fighter,but it is quite a different matter to expect him to win after Hatton's display of decadence he portrayed while on his 3 year binge.
Only in the UK did his deluded fans believe that Ricky still would have the goods.
It is a wake up call to UK fans to realize what they paid for.A christmas present to Hatton Promotions and nothing more.

It depends on the crime you have committed, some criminals deserve to be in a Turkish style hell hole.

I know, man. I do. But that's what the original thinking was when the institutes were created. Back in Babylon (if you didn't get stoned, castrated, your hands cut off, etc), prisoners were forced into labour and received education as part of it.

Now, we don't have enough in the way of first hand sources, but some scholars believe it may have been a positive thing in the empire.

I almost wish I hadn't mentioned it mate.The last thing I wanted was a discussion of penal matters.I only mentioned it because it was another reason why I liked Hatton in spite of his limitations.He evokes fond memories of a friend and I'm nearly 40.I wish I was able to lie about where I've been.Too old to think of it as some sort of badge.
