Notorious prisoner Charles Bronson has branded a setback to his parole after hearing a “shame” as it means he won’t be able to enjoy Christmas dinner with his mum.
Bronson – who has been dubbed Britain’s most violent prisoner – is the first inmate in Britain to be granted a public parole hearing and he had hoped it would take place in the summer.
But the 69-year-old’s hopes of a merry Christmas with his mother Eira, from Aberystwyth, have been dashed as the hearing was reportedly postponed to next year.
Bronson has spent much of the last half century behind bars, having been jailed for armed robbery in 1974.
The angry inmate lashed out, calling the backlash “Jingle f*****gb*****ks.”
In a handwritten letter to WalesOnline from his cell at the high-security HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes, he wrote: “I always say ‘never plan anything in prison unless it’s an escape’. Because you just don’t have control over yourself life.
“This Christmas I was looking forward to dinner with my mother.
“I figured I had a good chance of squeezing out some jam buns (probation) on December 12 – but now that won’t happen until 2023.
“That’s how this system ‘works’ – you couldn’t run an a**s-up in a brewery.
“That’s why there are so many suicides inside, and the women outside are losing hope.”
Bronson was originally sentenced to seven years in prison for an armed robbery of a Cheshire post office in 1974, from which he received just £26.18.
However, that initial sentence was extended many times over the decades as a result of various violent incidents in which he assaulted other inmates and took prison staff hostage.
Since changing his surname to Salvador in 2014 in homage to the surrealist painter Dali, he has become a prolific artist, devoting himself to raising funds for various charities, writing books and trying to encourage children to stay away from crime.
Bronson is hoping to be out of prison by Christmas for a celebratory family reunion.
He added: “I gave these hypocrites good behavior for years and they gave me nothing in return. It’s a shame and I’m sick of it.”
“Jingle f*****gb*****s’, I say. But it’s Christmas, so don’t be angry.”
“Can I make it by Christmas next year, who knows? But one thing is for sure – I’ll get out of here one day and it won’t be in a body bag.”
It comes after Bronson revealed his plans should he be sacked from HMP Woodhill in a chilling letter shared exclusively with The Sun.
In a letter, the prisoner scribbled what could be read as a threat.
A Bronson fan named Connor initially sent the criminal a letter when he got wind of the hearing.
He wished the lag luck and asked what he would do when he finally got a taste of freedom.
