SOME of Britain’s toughest Islamist prisoners are at war with jail authorities – over Pot Noodles. The snack is a key weapon in battles between jihadi inmates and officers in high-security Belmarsh, south-east London.
Prisoners in the Category A prison try to get one over on the authorities by cooking curries in their cells. Unhappy with the canteen grub, they hoard any ingredients they can get their hands on for weekly cell cook-ups with their pals. And the most prized ingredients are the sachets of spicy powdered sauce, noodles and other ingredients in Pot Noodles.
Chicken sandwiches are another favourite – with the meat stashed in uniform pockets to be used later. Belmarsh’s best chefs are Mohammed Hamid and Bilal Abdulla. Mohammed, 51, trained men at terror camps in the Lake District and the New Forest. Among them were the wannabe suicide bombers behind a failed attack on the London Underground on July 21, 2005.
The self-styled “Osama bin London” is serving an indefinite term. Abdulla, 29, got 32 years for trying to bomb a London nightclub in 2007 then attacking Glasgow airport.
A Belmarsh mole told us: “Prison officers are so desperate to stop the curry nights they keep searching cells to find the hidden food.” UK DAILY STAR
Yeah, who cares about looking for guns and knives, get those damn noodle boxes, fellas.
