What's going on in UK prisons?

This sounds like a joke, no?
Hundreds of Pagans serving prison sentences are to be given the day off work for Halloween out of respect for their religious beliefs.

Prison Service bosses have instructed staff to grant the convicts, who include Devil worshippers and Satanists, special privileges on Tuesday.

While fellow prisoners sew mail bags and undertake other jail work, the Pagans will be allowed to celebrate their 'holiday'.

They can use certain artefacts, including rune stones, flexible twigs and hoodless robes, provided they are kept in their cells or worn during communal worship. Robes with hoods are banned for 'security reasons', however.

Ties into the BA cross thing. Its unconvenient, but... we have a secular government. It has to treat all religions equally, neither favouring nor opposing any one of them. So, if its going to allow the Christians in the prison to take breaks on christmas and easter... then every little cult has its own excuse for some time off too.
