You imagined wrong. Those privileges (with the exception of the games console) are available for every prisoner upon entry and are taken away from you if you fall foul of the rules inside. What he didn't also mention, is that you get paid for working in a British prison, which is all relatively easy work and gets you out of your cell for long periods.

So how come you know so much about life in a UK jail?

So how come you're indirectly accusing me of being a one-time prisoner?

Nobody worked or knows people who work in the prison system, do they?

He hasn't exhausted all of the avenues of appeal yet, there's the European Court of Human Rights. It can take years for a case to be heard there. They often take speial cases for example this will be the first extradition to Thailand, that alone makes it special.

If this was committed in the UK he would get a long sentence for this murder, between 10 and 20 years, probably nearer 20 years.

I read somewhere (Phuketwan) that as part of avoiding the extradition being rejected on human right grounds they are prepared to build a western style cell for him to live in.

In Thailand if he pleads guilty I will be surprised if he gets any more than 10 years. The phuket suitcase killer (Ronald Fanelli) got 10 years and he brutally killed a 'bargirl' and stuffed her in a suitcase.

All these people who gleefully and ghoulishly anounce that he deserves to live in very bad conditions in a cockroach infested jail with diseased food where he will be brutalised every day probably don't realise it but this is the very argument which will prevent him from being extradited here should the case reach the last level of appeal - the ECHR.

His lawyers will be preparing the papers now.

Yes i knew them both.

Yes I was there that night.

I was 2 meters away from the brawl that started near the toilets.

I watched as the place errupted and 10 people were in the fracas.

I also saw Lee walk into 711 and go behind the counter.

I have seen the footage on tv showing he picked up a knife at 711.

Oi (Shawns girlfriend and my friend of 10 years) watched the murder -she was with him at his condo when he answered the door and Lee thrust the knfe into him several times.

I guess thats why I wrote "IT WAS HIM"!

great news! Having been there at Freedom bar that night and seeing everything unfold and going to the scene of the crime 30 minutes after the brutal murder (yes IT WAS HIM!!),

I will also be making myself available to the police/courts and the victims family... Lets put this guy where he belongs.

Hmm, yes, that is an astounding revelation that surely will secure justice. Let's recap: 1) you were at the Freedom when they fought--presumably you can identify, or better yet knew, Mr. Aldhouse and Mr. Longfellow; and 2) you were at the scene of the crime 30 minutes later, where I presume Mr. Longfellow may still have been, but Mr. Aldhouse had gone. Is that correct? Then, how can you be so sure ,"IT WAS HIM"? Unless you are simply identifying Mr. Longfellow with your statement, how do you reach the conclusion it was Mr. Aldhouse who stabbed Mr. Longfellow?

What 24/7 Bangup you are joking. The British jails are just like a 2 star hotel, you got your own LCD tv, keys to your own cell. You can wear your own clothes, choice of three meals both at lunch and dinner. Your out of your cell pretty much of the day.

You got access to education and gym, as well as other activities, some prisons have got phones in there cells.

I would imagine you would have to do some solid behind the door time before you got those types of privliges, they are normally reserved for first time non violent offenders or undesirables who are ending the end of there time, it will be 2 or 3 to a cell, nice bright red ladies tracksuits and 23 hr a day to reminise on how tough of a guy he is....

In einsight maybe the Thai route will be better for him....

What he didn't also mention, is that you get paid for working in a British prison, which is all relatively easy work and gets you out of your cell for long periods.

There are two recreation periods a day. Occasionally it can be a 23 hour day inside the cell, but that's incredibly rare for the average prisoner. Obviously violent, drug taking, mental cons are normally locked up for longer than the rest of the prison population for good reason.

You have access to a phone, inside the prison, normally next to the guard house. There are flush toilets. A medic always available. Your medication will be given to you.

Your meal choices are tailored to your diet and religion. You're fed a hot calorific meal 3 times a day, for which you're let out of your cell, unless your privileges are taken away.

You can enrol in any kind of education program you can think of. They have computers, music rooms, a barber, pool/snooker tables, a fully stocked library that can get you books to order if it's not in stock.

There's a VPU (Vulnerable Prisoner Unit) that you have to be sent to if you request it on entering the prison, which, as you would imagine, where prisoners are treated with even softer rules and guidelines.

Just reading the British press on a fairly moderate basis would tell you that repeat offenders locked up in the UK often laugh at their sentence and tell the judge "thanks for the bed and board" and "ridiculously easy time".

They also wear blue. Not red. It's not a jumpsuit. You're given 3-4 sets of a shirts, pullovers, trousers, socks, underwear, shoes when you arrive. You're allowed to keep some items of what you were wearing when you were processed - like sneakers for example. There are uniforms for work in lots of cases.

Compared to the Thai prisons which are: ~20 to a room. Sleeping on the floor in a space the size of your body. Infested with insects. Outlandishly hot. Chock full of airborne/waterborne diseases. Have you shackled around the hands and legs, which leads to chafing and skin infections. Have you defecate in public. Have a lights out. Have no phone. Have the most basic food provisions possible. No prison-run education. Forced labour for no pay. No games and hobbies. Riots where live ammunition is used. Beatings. Guards that have guns. Shall I go on...

Unless you're a dollar millionaire, I see no way in which a Thai prison is even in the same ball park.

It's hard graft and an extremely unpleasant experience and Thailand often appears in Amnesty's list of countries with the worst prisons and human rights abuses in prisons.

EDIT: I will say the "keys to your own cell" thing is a bit of a myth. In some C & D Cat prisons that may be the case for those about to leave the place and who already have regular day releases. That's definitely not the case for 90%+ of the general prison population.

---

Lastly, the phrase is "in hindsight." and it doesn't apply as "in hindsight" means looking back at some event or events that happened in the past.

Like i said you are describing A CAT D prison, somebody who gets life for murder will be on 23 hr bang up no problem, being allowed out once a day for a hr on which time they have to have a shower, clean there cell and do what ever moaning business they need to do with the guards.

As for arguing about whether the tracksuits (nobody mentioned jumpsuits)are red or blue.... well thats just a perfick example of a TV member

They needn’t worry about him in a Thai prison only his closest friends will be allowed in his prison cell with him, he can wear any old casual clothes he likes, and can even get the air conditioning remote control a fine choice of English movies on TV in an evening prior to settling down for the night on his extra soft comfort mattress, and as for food he has a wonderful 2 choices with every meal. And he will only receive total respect from the kind hearted caring compassionate prison guards. So no worries here just send him over.

Doesn't seem to be any mention of a deal that Thai prosecutors may not demand the death penalty but perhaps that is just standard and not worth mentioning. I hope that don't let him escape again.

He can't be extradited if he's liable for the death penalty.

I was describing life in Cat A HMP Wandsworth in London, where my uncle worked for 20 odd years.

It's also very typical of TV members to not respond to rebuttals made to their outlandish points. You're trying to point out my pedantry by being pedantic yourself and not bothering to answer my main point.

To make an assertion that a Thai prison will be a better route for him isn't an assertion based in any type of reality. It's a much more arduous and punitive experience. By a very long way. Unless you're very rich or powerful, which normally means you're not going inside in the first place.

Lifers are not locked up all day every day for 23 hours. That is not a statement of fact. They have jobs and are awarded similar privileges to all prisoners, contrary to your beliefs. If you'd like to tell my your source of information on this matter, I'd be interested to know.

If they're special cases well then obviously they're going to have restricted "freedoms" within prison for either their own safety or for the safety of others. They'd have come into the prison with the same basic right and privileges as everyone else, which I listed above.

It is only a games console that you have to work or behave for. Everything else I listed and mentioned is accessible for any level of prisoner. If they do something to have these things taken away, that's an entirely different thing.

I used Cat C & D prisons as example where you may be allowed to have keys. They're mostly open prisons where you can walk outside if you wanted to.

I find it hard to listen to people assert that life in Thai prison is easier than in a British one, mainly because of their vastly skewed ideas about just how punitive life in a British prison is.

Not to mention, when looking at past cases with much more heinous and attention-grabbing foreign murderers in Thailand, the sentencing is not at the "life" level. That's the drug-related crimes. 5, 10, 20 years perhaps. I don't really see how someone doing life in the UK is comparable or relevant.

Still, taking this into account, and mainly because of the language, disease, brutality, inedible food, forced labour and many other human rights abuses - I'd say life in a British prison is very very much like a walk in the proverbial park and Aldhouse is trying his utmost not to get sent here.

And he's failed.

Good.

So many hypocrites...on the one hand everyone mocks the Thai justice system, on the other hand they praise justice being done with this extradition.

I believe the praise here is due to the UK judicial system, which has approved extradition of Mr. Aldhouse to Thailand. It remains to be seen how the Thai judicial system operates once he is back in Thailand.

Especially considering the victim was an American. Being a high profile case they'll probably have to do a good job on this one.

He did not appear to me as accusing you of anything.

He asked where you got all that knowledge from.

I was wondering about the same thing.

Because your post was good and interesting.

I read it fairly tongue-in-cheek and normally when I talk about prisons someone always makes some inference, mainly as I live in Thailand. There is a fair amount of stigma attached to this country.

That's probably why.

Either way, I'm not offended if that is indeed what was meant. I was just trying to respond in (jokey) kind and I'm pretty sure that that's where JetSet was going, even if in a jokey way.

Alright, I'll admit it, I killed Lord Lucan and Jimmy Hoffa and they've hidden me from the press so well in Surat Thani, after they released me from Wandsworth!
