    It isn't as if he was a formerly law-abiding pensioner forced into it on account of poverty

    Ricketts has 36 previous convictions beginning in 1966.

    If you're that poor and want drugs, surely prison life would be more comfortable as you'd guarantee easy access to drugs

    If you die in prison do they have to pay for your burial?

    It's all a bit of a sad way for a 74 year old gangster to earn his pension. You'd imagine he's the kind of guy that you could take out for a pint and let him relate anecdotes about breaking into the Bank of England with Freddy the Fist and Louis the Locksmith, only to find Gordon the Snot Goblin had flogged all the bullion, or about blackmailing a high court judge who had a penchant for sticking kitchen implements up his bum. Very very sad tale.
