I think it was Dennis Neilson who said that being in prison was a good deal for pensioners - spending your time in a warm cosy cell, no fuel, food, council tax worries, tv and other entertainment on tap - watch out 'im indoors....

Well i sometimes wonder if those of us going to work are the ones with the low IQ.There's a young lady known here locally with a talent for shopping shall we say,who I'm told on a good day can earn £500.Once every 3 or so months she'll get her collar felt,go to court six months later and ask for x amount of similar offences to be taken into consideration and get 2-4 months in jail.

The moral of the story is that crime can definatly pay so long as your not botherd about a bit of time at HM pleasure.Now does this behaviour amount to lower or higher IQ or does Intellengence or IQ just become irrelevant,they've worked out that its easier going to jail for a couple of months a year  than spending all year going to work.

If they can plan the jail time so that they are inside for December and January, it means that they save on their winter heating bills and don't have to buy Christmas presents. Good planning!

Rickster, I know someone who lives rough by choice. He has mental healths issues, certainly but he's quite happy with his lot and in spite of numerous agencies trying to persuade him OUT of his tent in the park, they have all repeatedly failed.

Every October he breaches his ASBO by pissing in public in front of kids. The police are called and he is banged up through the winter on three meals a day. This has been going on for years.

Either let him back in the house or give him a divorce.

Not mine Pops! LOL!

He DID save my life when I was drowning though. I can't ever thank him enough for that. We grew up together as kids. Everyone knows him as "the tramp". They forget he had a life before the one he has now.
