Scum comparisons aside, what was Borstal actually like?

The actual Borstal in Kent?

I have a mate who was in a young offenders in Feltham for 6 months. I say 'have' - that was the start of his prison career and I haven't seen him since he went back inside a year after getting out of Feltham.

Nope, I always wear gloves and a mask, and make sure I wipe down the scene afterwards.

Not as bad as Scum. Hollesley Bay Woodbridge, which was basically a big farm in those days.
Some pretty hard cases in there non the less (mid 70's), Kept myself to myself and aside from a "welcome" slap got out pretty much unscathed.

No but someone I know fairly well got life today for Murder , very sobering and a lesson how things can go very wrong very quickly , I know people say say chuck away the key etc but when I think I'll be over 70 before she he's even considered for parole it brings it home.

Not as cushy as it's made out to be in the media that's for sure.

Mainly it's just full of idiots getting off their tits on spice or dirty scumbags crawling around on the floor looking for dogends.
