"Nice Tag!"

This is me this morning, testing out one of the new electronic tags they're introducing as part of their efforts to clear some space in Britain's over-crowded prisons.
There are various types of device being looked at, ranging from this unobtrusive 'wristwatch style' example, to a full 'body-belt' model, which is extremely heavy and cumbersome to wear.
In any case, I'm not eligible for a 'tagged release', myself, being a category 'A' prisoner. Instead they'll offer them to people like Rasputin, who in reality belongs in the funny farm, not in a man's jail.

Why do you keep removing comments?

I don't Steve. When I do, it'll say 'removed by blog administrator'. When it says 'author', that's the commentor removing it him or herself. Now why THEY might do that is anyone's guess:)

If you glued a little black string to it with the tip painted red so it looks like a fuze, or fuse or fuzee or however you Brits spell Bomb Igniter, it would look nice and command attention. Or you could just say that it has an internal timer.

I've got a friend with a dive computer watch that looks just like that. Cost him 1000 euros.

You're looking like a well posh diver. I'd flaunt it if I were you.

I hear that in certain areas of Manchester you can even buy a counterfeit 'Tag'.
