    Ditched ... cons are fuming over the ban on fry-ups

    HUNGRY cons threatened to riot behind bars after prison bosses stopped serving their favorite weekend FRY-UP.

    Worried officials were forced to hold crisis talks with fed-up inmates to calm the growing anger at Addiewell nick.
    Last night an insider said: "People were going nuts.


    "If you're on the outside then a fried breakfast is nice - but in jail it can be the highlight of the week."
    Scandals ... Addiewell nick
    Fury erupted after prisoners tried to improve their evening meals at the cushy West Lothian jail.


    The lags have a committee which allows THEM to choose what is on the menu at dinner time.


    But they didn't realise the extra cost of providing posher weeknight grub meant their Saturday sausage and bacon would be axed.


    Prisoners had been moaning for ages that they wanted more say in what they had to eat at dinner times.


    The insider said: "For a few days everyone was happy, but then Saturday came round and the fry-up was missing.


    "Basically the screws were told that if the fry-up didn't reappear there was going to be another riot."


    In January, around 100 cons at the troubled jail had gone on the rampage after some were denied their heroin substitute methadone.


    Armed with iron bars, they ripped water pipes from the walls flooding a wing and causing thousands of pounds of damage. A warder was injured after being battered with a pool cue.


    Worried about a repeat of that violence bosses at Kalyx - which runs the 750-prisoner jail - agreed to bring back the fry-up every TWO weeks.



    Our source added: "The governor got involved and in the end they caved in. On the weekend we don't get the fry-up, they're giving us two hotdog sausages in a bun instead.

    "It sounds silly, but it's important to us. The food is one of the few things we have to look forward to."


    The private jail - with en-suite cells and flatscreen TVs - has been named the country's most violent prison.


    In February we told how Addiewell chiefs gave cons 5 each to call home, to avoid a riot after a phone-credit bungle. The cash was later recovered.


    A Kalyx spokeswoman said: "We've had a food committee since the prison opened and from time to time make changes to the food that we serve."

    They need to import some Thai guards to give them some human rights, delivered at the end of a stick.

    I see plenty of work these scumbags could be doing in chaingangs, they should be glad I'm not into politics, a fry up would be the last thing they'd moan about

    Scottish cons have never had it so good as reported in The Sun

    HARDLY a week goes by when our soft Scots lags aren't moaning about life inside our cushy jails.

    We've had around 100 cons on the rampage at Addiewell in January after some were denied their heroin substitute methadone.
    In February we told how the West Lothian jail's chiefs gave cons 5 each to call home, to avoid a riot after a phone-credit bungle.
    And the Scottish Government revealed DIM cons across Scotland are to get Nintendo DS games consoles in a bid to "brain-train" them.
    Yesterday we revealed how cons at troubled Addiewell threatened to rip up the jail after bosses stopped serving their favourite weekend fry-up.
    Here writer MATT BENDORIS spotlights a ten of the world's worst prisons to show why our pampered cons have never had it so good...


    Tent City, Arizona, USA


    THIS place, above, does exactly as it says on the tin - it's a prison made from Korean War-era tents that heat up above 120F in the summer.
    It is run by Joe Arpaio, the self-styled 'Toughest Sheriff in America'.
    Inmate ... Mike Tyson

    He makes inmates wear pink underwear and convict clothes, banned cigarettes and porn magazines and serves them "15-cent" meals.
    Even former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson was left humbled when he had to wear the bizarre prison-issue clothes when he spent a day in the jail in November 2007 for drug possession and drink-driving.

    Earlier this year the sheriff introduced a programme called Pedal Vision, in which inmates cycle stationary bikes to generate electricity for their TV sets.
    But complaints have mounted about brutality.
    One prisoner, Scott Norberg, suffocated during a struggle with guards, after he was bound into a restraint chair and had his head pushed into his chest.
    A lawyer who has won 15million in damages for five deaths at Arpaio's jail said the sheriff created a culture of cruelty.
    But the lawman hit back: "I let people know I'm the sheriff - I'm not a social worker."

    Bangkwang Central Prison, Thailand


    NICKNAMED The Bangkok Hilton, this place is anything but five-star.
    It's mandatory for all detainees to wear leg irons for the first three months of their sentence.
    Death-row prisoners have irons permanently welded on - and only receive two hours' notice before they are executed by lethal injection.
    Inmates also have to do chores for guards and wealthier prisoners to earn money to pay for food at the canteen.
