Life As A Prison Educator – ‘Rule Britannia?’ What Foreign Prisoners Really Think!

(39 customer reviews)

£0.99

Forget the official publications, surveys and statistics, JD Morgan pulls no punches in revealing the truth about how the many foreign prisoners he taught on the ‘Inside’ felt about Great Britain’s culture and customs. JD reveals to his readers the reasons why his prisoners came to the UK, how they lived, what they liked and where they thought their own country was better or worse.

JD’s tale from his prison tales’ past series is neither a diatribe nor a criticism. It simply offers an alternative perspective from hundreds of foreign prisoners who stemmed from around the globe and it describes how they had to learn a very difficult language, drive on the left-hand side of the road and alter their behaviours, body language and hand signals in order not to cause unintentional offence!

Most importantly, JD relays their thoughts and opinions about the freedoms and liberties that most Western citizens take for granted: the right to vote, secularism, religious tolerance, trial by jury, feminism, LGBT, minimum wage, education & training opportunities, legal employment, acquiring material wealth and, of course, the ‘pursuit of happiness’. JD also expresses their very personal opinions about Great Britain’s world-famous institution: HM Queen & Her Majesty’s Royal Family. (3,800 words)

Description

“Before I came to this country from my small village, near Calcutta, my father gave me a warning! He said to be wary of the 3Ws when going to live in Britain: Weather, Wages and Women! My God, I wish I had listened to him!”, said the tall, thin electrician who was serving a lengthy sentence at Her Majesty’s Pleasure and had ended up in my English class to sit his Level 1 examination which, he hoped, would go some way towards meeting his Sentence Plan that, in turn, might result in his successful application for early parole. And before being sentenced, whilst he was a hard-working man, who was on very good money, which included London ‘weighting’, I had no idea which particular ‘W’ he had fallen foul to, but, I would hazard an educated guess that it wasn’t anything to do with his ‘Wages’, or indeed, the ‘Weather’!

During the fifteen years or so that I taught foreign nationals in prisons, I encountered hundreds of men, originating from all four corners of the globe, who had differing opinions and varying views about this country, which had, in effect, imprisoned them at Her Majesty’s Pleasure. And, having been sentenced, rarely, if ever, did I come across a foreign national who was a ‘guilty man’, who’d hold up his hands and say that he’d committed the crime for which he’d been convicted. Somehow or other, despite being ‘impeccably behaved’ in their own country – according to their accounts – the prisoner’s life had, apparently, started to unravel and spiral out of control, just as soon as they’d passed through UK Passport Control and set foot in this supposed ‘den of iniquity’, which, of course, the rest of us refer to, more realistically, as ‘Great Britain’!

    A personal, non-judgemental look at how foreign national prisoners view the UK. Some of the views may surprise you. JD has been in a unique position within the prison environment, enabling him to have meaningful dialogues with those who view the country from different perspectives. It makes for an interesting, enlightening read.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and
    am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about
    blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress
    content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
