Thought it was ridiculous, trying to get sympathy for the cons because they were missing kids at Christmas.....tuff s**t, should have thought about that before breaking the law.
I felt like it glorified the cons, only 1 of them showed remorse for what he had done. I think one of them even bragged he had seen every episode of Big Brother from behind bars for several different crimes, another said the prison was his home and the cons his family.
Sympathy for cons at christmas? That reminds me of christmas eve about 10 years back, when I worked in an office near Leeds Courts, a van load of prisoners were banging on the van sides and yelling "let me out". Must have really liked turkey.
