John Harrington complaining about the cold in prison

By johnboy 8 July 2011 23

The Canberra Times reports that well known identity in Canberra business circles, John Harrington, was the subject of Wednesday’s intricate police operation with substituted substance importation.

But it seems he is not well pleased by the hospitality on offer from ACT Corrections while he is held on remand.

Defence lawyer Kamy Saeedi said there would be no application for bail until today.

He said his client – who was dressed in a prison jumpsuit – had not been provided with adequate clothing, in breach of his human rights.

Mr Saeedi said Harrington had endured ”freezing” conditions in the cells.

What’s Your opinion?

Canberra Times – a newspaper that is always first to call the pot black. As for do-gooders who have never been defrauded – your turn real soon.

Just think – if your attacked in a slum without a good reason for being there then you could be sitting in the cell next door for the 2.5 years it will take to clear your ‘good name’

This communist state is too interested in the welfare of its criminals (even convicted murders beyond any hope of redemption) to care much about the DECENT members who have to work hard to pay taxes to line the luxuries of these air-breathing monsters.

+Lots, should also be air-thieving.

If it were a Communist state we would all be entitled to the same amount of air. Everyone would be regarded as equal (decent) – except perhaps serial killers, bourgeois christians, anti-revolutionaries aka capitalist pigs ready to take advantage of those less fortunate in order to line their own pockets and consume everything in sight. Actually that might be considered a crime and they would all be executed or put in prison to freeze their little pink bottoms off. I can imagine the cries for human rights, singlets and socks then (quite vividly actually)!

Oh dear…..another perspective

It might be a perspective, but it sure doesn’t make any sense.

Keep up the good work. Quality gibberish like this is becoming harder to find with every passing day.

Yes, that’s a great tactic. Poke fun at something you don’t understand. I’m surprised you haven’t tried to correct my spelling or grammar. Very clever.

Yes, I thought it was pretty clever too. Poking fun at that nonsense seemed like the only reasonable thing to do at the time.

As for correcting your spelling and grammar, I don’t that’s a worthwhile endeavour, so I won’t go there.

It’s not really your poor use of English that bothers me though. It’s more the ongoing and comprehensive lack of thought or wit in your writing.
