The headline in the Irish Daily Mirror screamed:
“YOU OLD FAG”
Pictured alongside the headline is a picture of Catherine Nevin, aka the Black Widow. Can’t be many in the country who haven’t heard of her or her crime. Look her name up on google if you’re waaay behind on the news.
Turns out the that Nevin has got hooked on cigarettes again while in prison. She had apparantly kicked the habit at one point. Charity visitors to the prison will often bring a packet of fags in with them to give to inmates. Nevin has allegedly told people she can sue the state for allowing charities bring in cigarettes which have got her hooked again. Nothing to do with having the willpower to stay off cigarettes.
What’s next for the Black Widow one wonders? Suing the state over obesity because relatives of inmates bring in bars of chocolate? Or how about suing for back pain because prison authorities didn’t give a course on posture?
Stir crazy or just plain crazy, hmmm?
