    When dystopian novel A Clockwork Orange came out in 1962, few thought it was a plausible imagining of the future. But, according to Malcolm McDowell, who stared in the novel's 1971 adaptation, it was in fact a chillingly accurate forecast. Speaking to the New York Daily News, McDowell explains how the Stanley Kubrick film shows a 'world in which all older people stay indoors with televisions on'. [...] The novel's central theme follows a group of violent 'droogs' - or gang members - who seek to illicit 'ultra-violence', mayhem and sexual depravity. The four young men pursue their pleasures after...

    Muslim sex offenders may be allowed to opt out of a treatment programme because it is against their religion, it was revealed today. The Prison Service's Muslim advisor, Ahtsham Ali, has said there is a "legitimate Islamic position" that criminals should not discuss their crimes with others. It could mean that Muslims convicted of sex attacks will attempt to avoid the Sex Offender Treatment Programme, which involves group discussions of their crimes. Although Mr Ali has not yet proposed changes to the rules, he told prisoners' newspaper Inside Time: "I will be taking it forward as a matter of some...

    The girl is 15 years old but looks much younger. Her face has the fine-boned elegance typical of her native Somalia, but her accent belongs to the streets of East London. She is plainly terrified. That much is clear from the way she avoids eye contact and constantly fidgets in her chair. "Promise you won't print my name or anything?" she implores repeatedly. "Promise no one will ever know that I've spoken to you? If people in my community find out, they'll say that I've betrayed them and I'll have to run away. And anyway, I don't want my parents...
