# Where's Nilson now?
He got 25 years in 1983, so he should've been released in 2008.

# Not likely
Wikipedia says he was imposed a whole life tariff so he ain't getting out except in a hearse.

Nobody can change that judgement, not even the home secretary - though he did try until the judge said "I don't think so"

I don't know why I felt the need to point that out. Accuracy, I suppose.

I am a very accurate man.

# I don't think you should censure people for visiting patients in hospital
I know a few folks who live near Broadmoor who regularly run events/social clubs in the hospital. You can argue whether psychos should be considered ill or just shot out of hand, but the fact remains that it *is* a hospital and Jimmy was a great supporter of hospitals.

# and i think that IS a good thing
i'm pretty far from a string-'em-up attitude towards even those who've committed the worst crimes. i think social facilities etc. in such secure institutions can probably only help.

but i don't think people are criticising them for visiting patients. i think the reactions are mostly:

(i) wtf? that's jimmy savile, the yorkshire ripper and frank bruno all together in the same photograph. how did that even...

(ii) the article said that jimmy had "become friends" with sutcliffe through his work. now there's a high chance that's the sun just making shit up, or at least exaggerating for the sake of a story. it's pretty strange if true, though. i can see being sympathetic to him, or having a cordial relationship in your role as a volunteer. but it'd take a lot to actually become a friend (unless he thought sutcliffe had shown genuine signs of reform by that stage).

(iii) going back to (i) really. not sure who thought "oh, that's a good idea. let's get frank posing with the ripper. jimmy - you stand there with your cigar" *snap*. even if it was informally set up rather than someone's genius idea for a pr story, you've got to wonder what went through the heads of the people doing it.

soz for length

# Sir Jim was on the governing board at Broadmoor
... which is, remember, a hospital. As such, he wouldn't have discriminated between one patient or another; or let his own feelings get in the way of his work.

Of course that kind of professionalism is incomprehensible to anyone at the Murdoch papers, hence the "story".

How many would you need for a complete set? Go on, I am sure that they would sell well in novelty shops!
Would you have to pay royalties to the people on the cards?
