114,000 Pounds Paid to Three British Prisoners After Court Rules It a Human Rights Violation To Deny the Junkie-Criminals Heroin and Force Them Off Drugs Cold Turkey


They had a right to heroin. Who would have guessed?

Drug-addicted prisoners have received compensation because their human rights were breached when they were forced to go cold turkey, it was revealed today.

Around 11,400 was paid to three inmates at Winchester Prison in Hampshire after a court ruled that it was a breach of their human rights to deny them drugs such as heroin and substitute substances.


The payments were criticised by campaign group the Taxpayers' Alliance.
Spokesman Mark Wallace said in a statement: 'It's disgusting that law-abiding taxpayers have to stump up compensation because drug addicts weren't allowed to keep taking drugs in prison.

'It's extremely worrying that the compensation culture has grown so much and particularly that prisoners have obviously realised that this is an easy way to make a quick buck.

'It is also extremely unfair that if you are the victim of crime you are likely to get minimal victim compensation, if any, but it appears criminals are increasingly turning a tidy profit from the system.'

What the hell happened to Britain?
