Well Gary, I wonder if those moments of pleasure were worth it?

It's good to know that there is a country on this planet that deals wth this type of thing seriously.

He served 4 months through the British justice system.

Vietnam's prisons are notorious for their squalor. Attention to sanitation, hygiene and food is in line with the treatment meted out to the country's "dregs".

Prisoners' food allowance is just 12kg of rice or rice substitute a month each. This is often reduced to 9kg for minor infringements of prison rules or for showing disrespect. Prisoners are expected to repent their crimes frequently and in writing. Beatings with bamboo canes are common, as is the use of stocks and electric shock treatment.

Prisoners are also expected to do hard labour and even when they have finished their sentence they may not be released. Under Resolution 49 of the Standing Committee of the 2nd Congress in Hanoi, they can be kept indefinitely and no prisoner is released unless the local commune of authority is willing to let them back into society.

Glitter, who has yet to be charged, was seen on Sunday by British Embassy officials, who are assisting him in getting a lawyer.

Gary, I hope you get all the above, in spades.

If they shoot him he'll miss all that jailtime fun.
