    jeffery archer has a bigger tv in his prison cell than I do at home. I wonder how many other prisoners get harrods hampers? I guess one of those cost more than most people earn in a week.

    Its not the sort of prison that you or I would be sent to and killed in, its a nice cushy one, the kind judges get sent to when they get caught shagging sheep. He's got a lovely job in the theatre now, saturday is his day off and sunday he is forced to go home and spend the day with his family.

    British justice, what a frikin joke! <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon13.gif>

    Time for a stupid question: who's Jeffery Archer and why is he in jail?

    A disgraced former politician and member of the House of Lords, best-selling author.
    Successfully sued a UK national newspaper for alleging that he slept with a prostitute, and won record libel damages.
    It was later discovered he had fabricated an alibi for the date he thought the allegation related to. The alibi was not used in court because the newspaper got their dates mixed up, but it was on record as evidence.
    Found guilty of perjury.. got 4 years.

    Look at Noriega - we lost lives, cost lives and probably spent a billion dollars to bring that drug dealer to justice.

    He's sitting in a so-called prison with a standard of living most Panamanians would kill for.

    Oh, and just FYI in case you didn't know the sort of prisons over here that politicians and such (rarely) get sent to are referred to as "country club prisons".

    The biggest b*st*rd you Brits should have put in prison was Lord King (used to be in charge of Britsh Airways). He is the *ssh*le that did the dirty tricks and got that cheap fare guy closed down. He also tried it with Branson but the guy had too much money for him to win. Yet another member of the British aristocracy is proven to be a cheat, liar and con merchant along with Princess whatever her name is, the snotty blonde German one. You Brits will know who I mean

    And before any nasty comments are thrown around, yes I am/was a Brit myself.

    Mousejockey,

    I think it is cruel to even suggest reading Jeffrey Archer's books...though I can't wait for the inevitable self-justifying autobiography he'll churn out as soon as he leaves prison.

    Incidentally, they put the guy in a high security prison to start with. Bet he loved that. Actually, Jeffrey Archer is a tough old s.o.b and I don't doubt that many of his fellow inmates have a great deal of respect for him. Personally, I laughed when he got sent down.

    I can't wait to read what he comes up with, there's bound to be "A twist in the Tale" as he's not the type "To Cut a Long Story Short" ...I imagine to will be a good read.

    "A Matter of Honor" or "Honor among Thieves" will probably be the subject with a liberal dose of "Twelve red Herrings"

    You can be assured though, to read it, you'll have to pay "Not a Penny more Not a Penny Less"

    He signed a £10,000,000 deal for his new books from the comfort of his prison cell yesterday. He has a better life in there than some people I know out here.

    Its funny how things work. If you kill someone your a murderer, If you kill a million people youre a conqueror.

    If you burgal someone youre looking at a 7 year stretch but if you commit a million dollar internet fraud youll most likely get a small fine and a well paid job.

    It all reminds me of a song I once heard.
    "I bought the law and I won
    Gonna write my book and make 10 milllion
    Cos' I bought the law and I won"

    Actually some of his books are derivative of others to the point of plagiarism. And also his entire life has been based of a fabric of lies and bullshit.. this is the man who was on the point of running for mayor of London (and may possibly have won) but is in fact a liar and a cheat. Evil bloke really.
