White Collar Crimewave Exposed On TV Tonight
For starters, there’s Jane (below, right), a respectable 36-year old mother who discovered a hidden talent as a cat burglar and launched a secret career flogging stolen antiques across the north of England.
Then there’s Graham, a former branch manager of the Halifax in South Wales. He persuaded customers to plough their cash into bogus investment schemes before plunging his ill-gotten proceeds into the mug’s world of gambling. Nicking from the branch safe was Graham’s next move and he was only rumbled when internal auditors found an IOU that read ‘I, Graham Price, borrowed £7 million from the Halifax’.
There’ll be plenty more of that sort of thing along with lashings of ITV-style sensationalism and out-and-out bullshit, but it should make for a fascinating and diverting hour and might give one or two of you some ideas for getting out of the bite-sized crunch hole that you’re in.
Just don't blame us when you're sharing a 12x12 foot cell with incarcerated pop whale Boy George.
