The world is a slightly better place, season of goodwill notwithstanding.

  Quickbeam 08:44 19 Dec 2013 must be a no news day.

I couldn't help wondering if the BBC would have given this so much coverage if it didn't coincide with their two part drama about the robbery.

But I did like the cartoon showing the walls of hell (does hell have walls?) with a rope made of sheets hanging down.

But back to this thread and subject. On Freeview television the other evening (17/12/2013), there was a programme on Pick about Real Prison Breaks. Ronnie Briggs and his life was part of that documentary.

If I were given a 30yr sentence I would escape given the opportunity.

If he hadn't escaped he might have ended up like John McVicar, the most wanted man in Britain at one time: With a degree in psychology and become a clinical psychologist.

michaelw, "public enemy number one" Mr. McVicar. Good to see someone reform.

  Mr Mistoffelees 15:18 19 Dec 2013

John McVicar's degree is in sociology and he is a writer/journalist.
