Apparently, Her Majesty's prisons are so full of inmates that some convicted of
terrorism offences have been let out early to make space. Now Babyshambles bad boy
Pete Doherty has been sent to fill the gap: he'll be serving a 14-week
sentence on parole violations, following last October's suspended sentence for drugs and illegal driving.
Naughty Doherty will definitely miss a solo date at the Royal Albert Hall, but anyone with a ticket should have no fear as the concert hasn't been cancelled, merely postponed. Fans of the troubled musician will just have to hope that he'll be let out early for good behaviour or similar in order to not miss a gig at this year's Glastonbury festival.
We can only wonder how Pete's prison crooning will be received by his fellow inmates.
