Youth jail is ‘like holiday camp’ with offenders given choice of lavatory seat covers .

Maybe it’s just me but ... do you think that possibly there’s a connection between young punks attitudes towards the law, the courts, the cops and the general public, and this sort of thing.  Ya think?  After all, what’s there to fear? 

A flagship youth jail has been branded a “holiday camp” offering juvenile criminals large plasma screen TVs, the latest computer consoles and even their own choice of lavatory seat covers.

Helen Stanmore, a former drugs worker at Warren Hill prison in Suffolk, claimed that young offenders enjoy a “cushy life” playing on Nintendo Wii consoles and regularly ordering into jail items from Argos catalogues.

She said the institute, which holds some of Britain’s most dangerous young criminals, allows offenders to choose their own seat covers for the lavatories in their en-suite bathrooms.

“It is a cushy life - it beggars belief what a comfortable life they have,” Mrs Stanmore said.

“I used to be shocked by how many creature comforts the prisoners were given.

“As long as they behave themselves they get everything.”

The former substance misuse worker, who lives in Ipswich and last worked at Warren Hill in May last year, added: “They get the most hi-tech stuff. It is like a seafront arcade. No expense is spared for these young murderers.

“It is a holiday camp, not a prison. They have a better life in there than what they have outside.”

Ms Stanmore, 52, claimed that cannabis was regularly used by prisoners and described one conversation she once had with a prison officer.

“He said to me that ‘if they have got cannabis it keeps my night-shift quiet’”.

The Prison Service said yesterday that Warren Hill is “anything but soft”.

A spokesman said: “Prison is about punishment and reform. It is anything but soft and it is absurd to suggest otherwise.

“No-one should be fooled by suggestions to the contrary.

“The punishment of the court is a loss of liberty by being sent to prison, which combines tough regimes with the opportunity of rehabilitation.”

Last year Warren Hill, which was opened in 1982, was praised by the Prison Service Chief Inspector as an institution “other juvenile units should aspire to”.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
