2020 – 20 – category a

Category A: My very last Cat A blog! – hurrah!

Hello friend,

Here’s the highlights…

They claimed that my representations “had been supplied to each member of the panel 2 weeks prior to the meeting” (LIE). In fact, in some cases, not supplied at at all; plus, my reps were not even sent until 2 or 3 days prior to the meeting.

“The meeting gave careful consideration to the independent psychology report” (LIE). How could this have been possible when the only one who appears to have had a copy was the (very) senior prison psychologist ( who no longer even works at HMP Wakefield). Their role, it would appear, was to undermine our report. It’s worth noting that our (very, very qualified) psychologist got more out of me in 1 1/2 hours than their psychologist ever got out of me over the last 7 1/2 years! this is a reflection of just how poor this prison’s psychology department is – trust and rapport will always prevail over threats and controlling behaviour.

The B wing officer was quoted as saying that there had been “occasions where officers have had to challenge Mr Coutts and he often challenged them in response” (LIE). This officer denied saying this – of course, its a fabrication.

Next in their box of dirty tricks: another innacurate security information report, not even disclosed to us prior to our representation (not lawful). This was a summary from the security guy. He used the words: “regularly, challenge, undermine and question”. Strange… none of these words appear on the IR I’ve since obtained. (another LIE).

Wow! These people are really desperate to keep me Cat A. It’s become a war of attrition, trying to starve me out of the castle. Whilst they want me to do is to chase a pot of gold at the end of a rather muddy rainbow. In other words: “do offending behaviour course, get progressed”. Except that’s how it works in here. It’s a hamster wheel for Cat A lifers who maintain their innocence. I don’t know any of them that have been downgraded since doing one of those new courses but I know several who have been recommended for more courses. How else are they going to pay prison psychologists.

Well one good thing has come out of this – I won’t be wasting any more of my time with a system that is so corruptible where staff can further their own personal agenda. This cannot be about ‘risk’. They dismiss nearly 17 years of positive work, behaviour and self-development in favour of the SOTP rebrand (more courses with no evidence of lowering risk). What is that? Gullibility, uninterest or just plain stupidity? – You decide.

Now breathe…ahhh…

Be happy, be safe and kind.

  • Hey dude in this weird planetary meltdown I have stumbled down that the rabbit hole that is your case and became enthralled in its complexities and obvious controversies for those who have never been enveloped in such a lifestyle and i can truly empathise with what is going down,. As someone who has escaped a dark existence and a vegan of 5 years (my pals actually call me the anti kim) i understand the ability for any person to evolve into the antithesis of ones self. i hope your evolution will see freedom one day and you can destroy the media painted monster . If anyone ever questions your evolution just tell them what i do , just say “don’t worry bud, I killed my old self”

    • Hi Kimberly, Sorry for the delay in replying – I have no direct access to my site – it can take a few days for comments to reach me. I am getting your comment sent in as it is an interesting one. You clearly spent a bit of time on this and deserves a proper reply. Stayed tuned – take care, Graham.

    • Hi Kimberly, How’s your lockdown going – keeping busy? I really enjoyed reading your comment – it sounds like you’ve come through a challenging period in your life but turned it into the discovery of your true self. These profound experiences can often lead to the unexpected. I too stumbled down a rabbit hole 17 years ago and have been here ever since -fated to repeat the Mad Hatter’s tea party over and over again (you find a way to relish the taste of tea, if not the company).

      Did your ‘dark existence’ feel dark at the time? Was it an epiphany or your evolution which lifted the veil? I do believe that human existence benefits through struggle – after all, if the darkness never existed in your life, the light would not be so bright.

      As for the ‘media painted monster’ – who cares? Really, who cares? These are just unpleasant people who troll for a living – what they write is of zero importance in the bigger picture – it’s no more than a distraction from the important questions, like: What can I do to make the world a better place? See future blogs 54, 55 and 56 – you’re already doing it with your ethical food choices.

      It’s also great to hear that you also believe in our power to evolve into better versions of ourselves – the most important and infinite projects.

      Up the evolution!
