Vicky’s Next Chapter

What next for Vicky Pryce? She’s been signed up by Biteback to publish her prison diaries, billed as “a very personal book examining prison life, but also a hardhitting economic analysis of the cost to the economy of keeping women in prison”. It will be called ‘Prisonomics’.

Sounds fascinating…

    I went to private school and now I am a communist

      As a communist you must be enriched by the diverse multicultural UK shithouse.

      I went to a seminary and killed millions! Think I’ll have you shot to be on the safe side. I killed more communists than the Whites as well!

        i would like to be THE VOICE …. like Tom Jones

        ( although he was a “bit” more than that to Kathy Kirby at the Angel Hotel Cardiff one night in the mid Seventies as i recall but we ll draw a discreet veil ).

        efrem zimbalist jr says:

        ooh owen ( the real one ) i ve just wikipedia’d you ( did you enjoy it or did it hurt first time ?)

        whatever , i see you state you feel victimised by being conceptualised by the public as a ” lefty rent a gob ”

        surely not dear …. you re not that relevant yet ….. are you ???

      I went to a posh girls school and now I’m dictating where parents can educate their own kids.

      So she’s going to be a communist again. No doubt the BBC have kept her chair warm.

      Snodgrass says:

      According to Wiki, the loathsome OJ went to Bramhall High School in Stockport. It was the first school to introduce unisex toilets – to tackle bullying.


      • 63
        Owen's female parent says:

        Owen. You haven’t been bullied in the toilets by those rough girls have you?


        • 79
          efrem zimbalist jr says:

          yes i was mummy…. that s what veered me towards my current sexual orientation .

      I went to a Victorian boarding school and then the Army. What could possibly be interesting about her writing about two months in a soft prison!

        Diblius Oribilis says:

        That’s nothing, I went to a private tutor who favoured the rod, and then fought in a legion under Varus and was slaughtered along with all my comrades in the Teutoburg forest in 9 AD.

      Nissed as a Pewt says:

      “Prisonomics”? What a rubbish title – what about “Wimmin Eating Porridge” Vicky? Good ring to it, yes? Right, sign on the dotted line and you won’t regret it…

      When are the Blair diaries due? Ali’s must have made him a bob or two as well!

        Will her book examine the cost to the country in legal bills and wasted police time thanks to the decade of lies from Pryce and Huhne?
        Will any profits the pair of perjurers now earn be paid back to the taxpayer?


    • 58
      Tom Catesby says:

      Profit from crime by publishing… only a problem if the likes of you and me did it.

      yes and rupey baby breaks it every day.

    Makes prison time seem even more worthwhile: food and board paid for by the taxpayer, plenty of free time to write the book.


    • 30
      A reader writes says:

      Since many prisons these days seem to be little more than comfortable hotels, it must be right that those who can afford it should pay for the food accommodation – not to mention electricity and all that security.

    So Pryce and Huhne were released today.. I wonder who drove home…..

    I could live on a one off payment of £46


    • 81
      efrem zimbalist jr says:

      what is that £46 per hour drunken ??

      difficult to live on it long term but i daresay one could sacrifice oneself for no more than about a week … longer would be deleterious to ones glenfiddich and monte cristo intake . … of course

    the cost to the economy of keeping women in prison

    Are they implying that female criminals should never be sentenced to prison?


  9. 9
    Stockhold Syndrome says:

    Huhne is still a c.unt


  10. 10
    Will says:

    what Vicky actually means is that nice middle class women like her should not be imprisioned for grassing up ex husbands.

    well viky you did commit perjury so that’s why you were sent down after then trying to state that you were just a poor defenceless women who felt she should stand by her man.

      efrem zimbalist jr says:

      why does nt she just call the book

      submissive prison lesbianomics

      or did big bertha not turn her .


  13. 13
    Alexsandr says:

    does she expect us to think her experencies are even a tiny bit typical? I bet it has all been tea and crumpets with the governor and bridge evenings in the cell. Bet they kept her away from the real nasties too.


    • 20
      Will says:

      in fact her and chris most probably had a fairly easier ride in comparison to most other new prisoners, as most inmates knew that assaulting either would lead to time added on and solitary, so its not worth it usually.


    • 84
      efrem zimbalist jr says:

      possibly “crumpet” with big bertha and wanda whiplash

      hardly tea with the governor i would think ….

    Bazinga! says:

    Why are the west still obsessing about Syria, especially the British media.

    If the BBC, Sky News and Channel 4 are so concerned let them sign THEIR sons AND daughters up for the army to go and fight rather than leaving it to working class white males (that the media so hate) to fight another worthless war.

      MacGuffin says:

      What on earth has that got to do with the far more important matter of Vicky Pryce’s future plans? For shame!

      efrem zimbalist jr says:

      yeah but it s the working class males white black and green with pink spots et al…who are the only dross desperate enough to join … no money , innit

    SUE BROWN says:

    What next
    for Vicky Pryce? She will monopolise everything and take over the world.

    Prisonomics? I can’t help but chuckle even though I feel sorry for the poor cow.


    • 21
      Bazinga! says:

      Well five bellies Smiff stole 100K off the tax payer by claiming her her sisters loft was her second home and now gets regular gigs on the BBC so you can bet these two fuckers will be signed up to feed of the teat of the BBC/tax payer ASAP.

        True. The BBC will eventually appear on its very own Crimewatch. Crooks & scammers the lot of them. & Pedos.

      what s the betting some online publishing whizz kid has already offered her five million upfront for the exclusive rights.

      reminds me of katherine jenkins getting seven mill upfront before she had recorded a note .

      but at least she can sing …… and she s a “looker”

      ( i said looker with an “L”)

    She is a Lib Dumb so no balanced views on the EU economics just outdated rubbish.

    Enid 'the knife' Blyton says:

    …She walked casually into my cell and stood over me.
    Her lacerations, now healed, looked quite fetching in the dimly lit corner of the room.
    She smiled longingly as her bathrobe somehow slipped to the floor.
    Her trusted shank dropped to her left foot as she casually stepped over the robe and towards my bed.
    My thoughts were of Chris, just for a moment, as I quickly forgot him and took her into my arms.

    …..she caressed me, as I have never been caressed before. Her lips moulded to my lower regions and I melted with desire.

    If a man does a crime he serves the time.

    That is the end of it. Men and women commit crimes and the law should punish them just the same.

    Engineer says:

    Eight weeks in an open prison is hardly a basis on which to become an expert on how society should deal with females found guilty of murder and other serious offences.

    I suppose you can’t blame Pryce for cashing in while she can, but the idea that she’ll be all over the airwaves sanctimoniously lecturing us all rather nausiates me.

    Vicky Pryce to publish prison diaries?!
    Is somebody taking the f^cking piss? She has not been in there long enough to write anything that would fill a cigarette paper, even if most of us were remotely interested in reading the shit, it is an insult that people are expected to buy it or even read it. Most people in jail will spend longer in the f^cking dinner queue!
    I wonder how long it will be before the reading public has the unique opportunity to benefit from Huhne’s sage wisdom and lengthy prison experience? What a stinking disgrace.

      Chapter 1.
      By V. Pryce.

      The cell door slammed behind me and I slumped onto my prison issue DFS leather sofa and held my head in my hands. What a situation! How could I cope with a life like this? I plucked an apple from the fruit bowl. It was slightly bruised .

      The SKY TV was churniong softly in the corner but I wasn’t interested. Nor in the invitation to join the gym. Or the tennis club. Or the offer to make up a bridge fourth.
      The dinner menu on the table could not interest me. Nor the wine list.

      This was chokey. Porridge. The clink..Prisoner Cell block H..Within these walls…

      What despair..Could I ever cope? What would become of my children? My home? my career?

      As I begun to unpack my meager belongings a key jangled in the lock. A warder appeared and said ..”Right that’s it ..You’re free to go..Please fill in the feedback card..Thanks for staying with HMP services solutions.”

      And I ran to my freedom…
      I could taste the rain and relish in my freedom.

    That she has shown a total disregard for our laws is beyond question, and on that basis, why should we believe that this convicted liar will not re-offend? After all we already know we can’t take her word that she will be honest in the future.

    “”a hardhitting economic analysis of the cost to the economy of keeping women in prison””

    Can someone explain in these days of state enforced absolute gender equality why “women” in prison is a separate issue to men in prison? Why do we still hear politicians, often rampant feminists, saying we jail too many women and women should not be jailed?

    Surely the justice system must be gender blind like every other part of society.

    Who the hell cares?

    Isn’t it time some of these publishing companies had a serious look atthemselves. We have ‘biographies’ of some moronic kids just out of school, hard childhood books -yes, I too fled German bombs as a baby. grew up in impoverished rural England -so what it wasn’t all misery.

    Now we have some economist who lied for her husband (coercion huh!) who then plots revenge because he left her, gets rightfully imprisioned and writes a book.

    If she were Mary Smith, ex wife of a disgraced manual worker -would she get a publisher?

    Where the hell is dignity, remorse? A touch of the John Profumos wouldn’t go ammiss!
