For a Friend in a Cell

A friend of mine was arrested yesterday having been spotted breaching his ASBO in the town centre. There are vast swathes of Brighton in which he is not allowed to stand, sit or walk until 2012. Society has rejected him and the authorities wish to control his movements. His crime? Having a can on the street and begging. Due to his arrest he could face a maximum of four years in jail for breaching his ASBO. So, he could receive a prison sentence merely for standing in the wrong place in town. A bit harsh? Welcome to Brown's Britain.
