A Surrey prisoner who is addicted to smoking is seeking damages after he was denied tobacco for seven days for swearing at a prison officer.He claims he should have been given nicotine patches or gum to satisfy his cravings during the ban.
Lawyers representing Jack Richard Foster claim he was subjected to "cruel and unusual punishment" by staff at HMP High Down in Banstead.
Meanwhile, over in Portsmouth:
An anti-smoking charity has called for Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn to be prosecuted for smoking a cigarette on stage on the first night of a tour.*sigh*
I wonder how the geniuses that Angry Exile came across the other day would explain this..?
