Cell phones

Prisoners have landlines installed in their cells despite Government pledge to crackdown on perks be...

Maybe we should all go to jail for a nice comfortable, warm winter's holiday?

Re: Cell phones

Will the calls be monitored? 
sounds very tempting...... just imagine the info the plod could gain...
If it happens, there will be some interesting "code words" and "code phrases"... being bandied about during "normal" conversations....

Might as well throw in some voice changers too  Roll eyes
Seriously this is absolutely crazy. You commit crime and the government give you a cell with a playstation and TV (probably with satellite), communal pool tables, and now they're going to get phone lines and no doubt broadband etc ?
Whatever happened to being punished and having no rights? Prison sounds more and more like a holiday hotel with every passing year. OAPs don't get that kind of attention in nursing homes.
Something is seriously wrong with the state.

Re: Cell phones

Meanwhile, line rental and the cost if installing a new line increases and BT installs the 'Cell' phones for free.
It's daft and plain wrong!

Re: Cell phones

I'm sure that will be very handy.
No more complaining about the prison food, just order in a take away.
