2017-140-Psychology

Category A (Psychology) Hello friend, I’m going to detail the 6 false and/or incomplete pieces of information that Psychology and Security submitted in their reports to my Category A review, I’ll look at each one separately and look at what preceded the negative file entry, the file entry itself, the lengths I had to take

2017-139-Category A Review

This includes reports from various departments, including: Security; Psychology; the Offenders Management Unit (OMU); a wing report; A report from Recovery Services.

2017-138-Category A

Category A Hello friend, After 14 ½ years in prison, I’m still a Category A prisoner. This is nothing to do with my risk levels, which, bar one, are all “low“. The one that isn’t low is opinion based and a result of the conviction. The reason I’m still a Cat A is purely because

2017-137-Inside Time

Inside Time Hello friend, I had a letter published in the prisoner’s newspaper ‘Inside Time’. That’s 2 out of 3 letters published. Maybe I should write to them more. I won’t bother reprinting it as you will be able to view it on their site, www.insidetime.org. It’s really just a rewrite of blog number 103

2017-135-Adaptor

2017-132-Arts Project

Arts Project Hello friend, This is the last Arts Project before the show days. This covers the 5 days prior to the first show. Choir rehearsal: went okay, despite the unwanted interjections from the same guy from the other day. It’s a shame; I had such big plans for the choir’s involvement which I had

2017-131-Arts Project

Arts Project Hello friend, Our first rehearsal this week went really well. It was another acoustic run through; we nearly made it to the end, bar 1 number. However, the day of the second rehearsal was very stressful. Firstly, at the rehearsal itself, we had one of the choir causing problems. He was actually attempting
