Otis Ferry: Prison life is not tough

Earlier this week, in my column for the New Statesman website, I wrote about the bizarre claim that Otis Ferry is being held as a political prisoner. Yesterday he hit hit the national headlines after complaining that prison is too soft.

I quote, of course, the Shropshire Star's telling of the story:

The joint huntmaster of the South Shropshire Hunt said: “Contrary to popular belief, prison life is not tough, and in this namby-pamby society we even get our own televisions, although I have quickly realised that watching it is quite a punishment in itself."
