Dear Editor. I read your blog a lot whilst I was in prison. My wife like the serving prisoner who writes for your blog, printed out and posted me the material on your site. I wonder if Mr Grayling bans that now?
Chris Grayling did state that it is not right that some prisoners appear to be spending hours in their cells watching daytime TV while the rest of the country to go work. That's fair enough but his Government and The Prison Service force prisoners in to their cells to watch daytime TV especially of a weekend as recently quoted by the writing prisoner on your blog. If Grayling doesn't think it is right, then Grayling should do something about should he not? The wide majority of the public would in fact say that all prisoners should be locked in their cells all day. If he doesn't want this and he, his buddy Nick Clegg, want to ban books, then what the ******** hell does the Government propose prisoners do? For one, there is a waiting list for prison jobs. If you are lucky enough to get a prison job then you are opened up. If you aren't, you are banged up behind your door and it is as simple as that. This man does not do himself any favours whatsoever. He is making himself look dense and so out of touch he is becoming a standing joke. My wife does e-learning courses for her job. Why don't the government do something similar if they don't want prisoners lounging in their cells watching Jeremy Kyle and the other many tedious day time programmes. Mr Grayling, they have no choice pal so therefore it is down to you to start giving prisoners a choice if you do not think it is right. It was what you get paid for Sir! And on that note, I would just like to congratulate you on an excellent site. Makes a change from the many boring ones on the web! Respect, Andy.
