Tommy Robinson has been voted HMP Hull’s softest mouth award.

Mr Robinson will be awarded the prize in a ceremony to be held on the roof of the prison.

One insider told us, “Tommy is already a popular member of the prison cohort. Big Barry from G wing is already a fan. It’s important to get Barry’s vote as he’s on the voting committee and has the best spice on G wing.”

Big Barry said, “I’ve seen plenty of prisoners come and go in my 20 years but Tommy is definitely the softest mouth. It’ll be a shame if he ends up in Armley. In a small prison like Hull everyone knows each other and there’s more of a community feel to things. But you can’t hold people’s ambition back. He’s gone onto bigger and better things. He’s a young lad with a bright future and it’s not for old lags like me to stand in his way. I’ll miss him and he’ll always have a place in the showers on G wing if he ever wants to come back.”

It’s not clear what Tommy’s prize is but one prison official confirmed that it definitely isn’t a file, false passport and a nun outfit. There is speculation that it could be candles, massage oil and some Bryan Adams music. The prison service did tell us that this wouldn’t be allowed under strict prison rules as they could be turned into a shank.

Interestingly, a prison official did confirm that strict prison officer is one of Tommy Robinson’s favourite routines.
