Letter in The Spectator: Rod Liddle wonders how vodka gets into prisons, I tell him how

Sir

Rod Liddle wonders how vodka gets into prisons.

The prisoners distil it. Those that are on ‘privileges’ because they are pretending to be good, are allowed to cook their own food, using raw ingredients. They gather the vegetables and peelings and then make vodka.  It is distilled in their rooms. Simples.

On a visit to a prison I was shown this being done and offered a snifter. I was also asked whether I would smuggle drugs in because ‘I wouldn’t be a suspect’. On the same visit to the wing where the ‘privileged’ were incarcerated, the officers were playing pool with the inmates while a Rastafarian was dealing drugs with an Eastern European in-house drugs cartel.
