BT cuts phone charges for prisoners


@ n

"This will make it cheaper for them to run their crime syndicates or do book deals from their prison cell.

well done idiots."

Get a grip, every phone call is recorded.

Fo those with no idea:

£12 wage (for 40 hours work and thats a top wage)

-£1 towards tv licence.

-£3 on average for toiletries.

-£6 for tobacco (the majority of prisoners smoke)

leaves appoximately £2 for a phone card, now if your wife and kids have only mobiles, your hardly getting a chance to hold a descent conversation at all, Visits are limited and for a lot they are rare due to being transferred to prisons in other parts of the country where family can't make it or afford to travel to.

I've been there & done that, not proud, but when there's a problem at home and you have 3 minutes to talk about it, it really is unreal. The phone calls were a rip off for years, no one spoke up on our behalf because we were "just prisoners" but one day, one of the people reading this comment will end up there for something or another. So dont be so quick to jump the gun.
