    Really interesting report though, thanks for posting it.
    Ah fuck sorry mate, like I said to Dirus, posting in a hurry before I get turfed out my flat. I'll remove them sorry! I had about 10 more pics not to post and a few slipped the net. Will remove, don't have time to blur and re upload!

    Done! I was just looking at the character names for the video or play they were doing, totally overlooked the sensitive info. Really sorry about that. Thanks for the second nudge today! :(

    Err... yeah pretty much. H fucked off with lover boy and has left me 1k outta pocket so cant pay my full rent. Landlord has been sound considering, but its a total fucking mess. All good, turns out she has bailiffs after her so my 1k seems like pocket change to her problems!

    The one local to my home town seemed to be staffed by some very enlightened people. I am ever grateful for failing my 'Eleven Plus', going to Secondary School housed in a brand new building with brilliant science teachers and science facilities; because at sixteen this allowed me to rethink what I wanted to do and take 'O' and 'A' level GCE's at the local Tech College and eventually a degree. On the first day of our 'A' level course we were joined by a tall lad, dressed in the best Borstal two piece, grey suit. He had found a very simple way of producing half crown coin blanks from Devarda's Alloy, which he used to empty the local fag machines - selling the fags for real money in the local pubs etc! The staff persuaded him not to open his own mint and he found a job locally when he was released from supervision and finished his studies. I get a feeling that level of help and guidance is not there for today's young offenders - probably wrong as it always takes 'two to tango', but one does wonder. As HJ says, very sad places if the young inmates are not being helped to stay out of trouble.
