Media Hello friend, The Metro have come back to IPSO with another proposed article corrections; however, they have changed little and still not admitted that they included falsely attributed quotes and/or claims. Also, still no proper apology to my family. This will have to go to IPSO’S Committee to adjudicate, along with the Daily Star.

Stopped Mail Hello friend, Security finally gave me the stopped IPSO letter and newspaper articles. Weirdly (not so much), I also received another letter and article from IPSO the day after it was mailed, but not the other one which had been sent between these two.

Food Hello friend, As a vegan, the prison has to supply soya milk and yeast extract. Most prisons supply more in their vegan pack.

2017-67-Arts Project

  Hello friend, Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not be posting any more arts project blogs until after the performances.
