Argos delivery too slow, say prisoners
By Paul Stokes
(Filed: 19/07/2006)

Some of the country's most dangerous prisoners have complained about poor television reception and delays in receiving goods from the Argos catalogue.
Inmates raised the issues in a list of grievances with managers at the maximum security Full Sutton prison, near York.
They also claimed that cells were smelly and too hot, food portions too small and visits were delayed because a dog handler was not always available for searches.
The 19-year-old prison holds category A and B prisoners and has a capacity of 613. Among the complainants is Kenneth Noye, who is serving a life sentence for the road rage killing of Stephen Cameron in 1996.
Full Sutton's joint consultative committee, a representative body for inmates, aired the gripes during a regular meeting with managers. They included problems of goods ordered from Argos not being delivered for up to two weeks.

I'm waiting for the pendulum to swing back the other way so that we can enjoy public floggings and hangings again. Make a change from Big Brother.
