Voting, voluntary exercise, not voiding one's bowels in public, all rights when loses when incarcerated. Some may be more reasonable than others but that is how the prison is designed. One thing prisoners could aways do however is read. Attendant with every prison in Britain is a dining hall, exercise yard and a library. What is more, the libraries are regarded as a privilege that prisoners earn though good behaviour, also acting at a mediating factor and part of the rehabilitation process.
No more! In an act of institutional lunacy on par with the clinical use of electro-shock therapy, British Justice Secretary Chis Grayling has introduced further regulations restricting the possession and use of reading material as though they could be rolled up and smoked.
There further recommendations to make all prison overalls bright lavender, reinstitute head-shaving, require inmates to hop on one foot in the dining hall line and to make it necessary for inmates to quack like duck when addressing prison guards.
