Pete Doherty’s request to go to notorious Leyhill Prison for his inevitable sentence has been answered with an appreciative ‘yes’ from the Prison authorities and Judge concerned.
Pete Doherty’s Lawyer made a statement on behalf of the star: “I am glad my request to go to Leyhill Prison where the smack is actually purer than the street has been accepted. I would like to thank the judge for agreeing to give me some much needed time out where I can indulge away from the public gaze.”
A spokesman for Leyhill exclaimed they are preparing for Doherty’s entrance tonight at 10 PM. His room will have a colour television, a ps3 console with 5 top games, a dvd machine where he can order 3 films a day from the prison’s extensive library and of course the pièce de résistance – as many drugs as he wants. The prison has uppers and downers and has the finest Afghan heroin in the country. We give each prisoner new needles every morning so they do not re-use the needles or get infections. We also supply crack smoking pipes in the Prison shop.
A former inmate talks to the Daily Squib about his experience: “The drugs are more rife there than in traditional jails. When I got to Leyhill I found that was true. Drugs were being used frequently and I was constantly coerced and tempted. In the mornings I would take cocaine and heroin speedballs, then by the afternoon I would be chasing the dragon and smoking crack cocaine.”
“It’s like a holiday camp,” he said. “The only thing it doesn’t have is a swimming pool. Although the Labour Government is going to have one installed next year at a cost of £450,000 to the taxpayer.
“You can get any drugs. It’s easier to get them inside than it is outside. I saw lads who didn’t do drugs become addicted to heroin and all sorts
while they were there.”
The cost to the taxpayer to have these prisoners looked after in the lap of luxury per annum is £75,000.
No wonder Pete Doherty is glad to be going back to prison. Here he will get all the drugs he wants and he will be pampered in the lap of luxury.
A spokesman for the UK Prison Authority exclaimed, “People pay good money to get his facilities and he will be getting all this for free. We have extensive entertainment facilities, over 20 pool tables, each room has its own ps3 console and HD TV, the prison also has a very large DVD collection including all the cult films and hard to get DVD’s. The food is health-orientated and every night prisoners are given a menu where they tick off what gourmet cuisine they would like for the next day.”
