    its when you are in your local glasshouse standing on the brass line with a pile of your kit on the floor in front of you . You are beasted at speed taking one item at a time to your cell. One boot lace one sewing needle one sock you get the picture . Osnatraz early 1970's
     
  5. No then. We deal with ill discipline in an entirely different way nowadays.
     
  6. yes we do, the provost carry all of your kit for you already ensuring that your bed is made and there is a brew waiting for you in your 'cell' They will also tune your sky box in and let you see the collection of XBox and PS3 games that are available for your delights.
