JUNE 2014

Hello Friend,

The recent conviction of Andy Coulson for corrupt activities raises some intruiging questions.  The period in question was from 11 years ago (2003).    See ‘Part 2: Phone Tapping and Payoffs’ on the Concealed Evidence and Disclosure Difficulties page.


On a more positive note, I am heavily involved with the music based activities that are on offer at this prison.   Twice a year we put on a concert for inmates and staff.   This is not without many challenges, not least getting enough rehearsal time with guys who may be on 4 different wings.   Despite this, the summer concert was probably the best prison concert I have been involved in.  For the first time in many years I got to play harmonica on one number, as well as drums on a other (thankfully a relatively straightforward number for drums).

The final song gave me a rare moment of euphoric joy – ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’ by The Who.   Those of you that know me will already be aware how much of a massive fan I have been since I was a bopy and that one of my bands outside was a Who tribute.  So, despite last year’s heart attach and, dare I say it, being 46 (ouch!), I couldn’t resists doing the whole Townshend-esque performance including scissor-kicks and windmills.   Thanks to the whole band for doing a fantastic job.  There is certainly a lot of creative talent in these places.

Be happy, be safe, see you next time.
