    I'm being a twit for believing in principle? That says more about you really than anything else.
    No, I am not overreacting. A prisoner has extorted and held to ransom the justice system, and the justice system caved in. I don't care how little a KFC costs, they shouldn't ever ever under any circumstances be getting any. Now all the prisoners know that if you want anything, just threaten to self harm and the mugs that are the Prison Service will give it to you.
    called you a twit for saying ive never heard of principle not because you believe in them

    Well when you shrug off three KFC meals for prisoners who effectively blackmailed the justice system as no big deal, I have to wonder if you have heard of principle, of if you have what principles you do have.

    I read in the paper a few weeks ago about some prisoners that refused to eat canteen food and threatened to harm themselves unless they were given some KFC. Naturally, a prison officer was straight away sent on a twenty odd mile trip to go and get some. What kind of country are we living in, when prisoners can hold the justice system to ransom?
    Exactly- the prisoners should of been temporarily taken to high-security mental home if necessary
