'Misfortune' of a multiple killer

LIKE any right-thinking person, I was horrified to read about the convicted triple killer who suffered the abject misfortune of having his cranberry juice and nasal trimmer being carelessly lost by cavalier prison staff.

For someone serving such a lengthy sentence, proper nutrition and personal hygiene is surely vital to maintain individual health, so that, upon release into general society, wanton recidivist behaviour is avoided and societal cohesion is maintained.

While £800 is, of course, a paltry sum in compensation, it is much better than nothing. So let us all raise a glass of organic cheer to the Human Rights Act.
