There’s your lockdown fix.

There’s not much to look forward to now that we’re in lockdown with pretty much everything in the entertainment world being indefinitely delayed thanks to the uncertainty surrounding Coronavirus.

However, there’s some good news out there for some of you as Britain’s most notorious prisoner Charles Bronson – or Charles Salvador as he now prefers to be known – has revealed that he’s going to be publishing a book of poems. The book is authored with a guy called Steve Wraith who has known Charles for 20 years and stays that the poems will ‘show a different side to him’.

The Sun have obtained an extract from one which reads as follows:

Broadmoor was a gas, Rampton a hole

Parkhurst was a trap, that’s where I lost my soul.

Deep.  Another poem apparently brands Soham killer Ian Huntley and Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe ‘a disgrace to the human race’. Clearly not afraid to get controversial with his poetry there then either.

Not sure how you can get your hands on the poetry compilation – which is titled ‘Words Inside And Out’ – but why rhymes like that you can bet it’ll brighten up your isolation so you might as well spend some time trying to track it down. What else are you going to spend your time doing?
