Charles Bronson positive after parole hearing and says hes an angel now

Charles Bronson is feeling “positive” after a three-day parole hearing this week.

Britain’s longest-serving prisoner, 70, became only the second-ever inmate to have his case heard in public after nearly 50 years in jail.

The hearing, attended by the Daily Star Sunday, saw his team present a 738-page dossier campaigning for his release or for him to be sent to an open prison.

Bronson, now back at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes, told the panel he dreamed of “walking on grass” and “eating fry-ups”.

Pal Richard Booth said: “Charlie is pleased with the Parole Board process and is looking forward to a positive outcome and gaining the progression he deserves.”

During the review, Bronson admitted he had been “very, very naughty”.

But he said he was now “anti-violence” and wanted to spend his remaining days working on his art and visiting his elderly mum.

Bronson, who changed his surname to Salvador in 2014, added: “All I can say is, compared to what I was, I’m an angel now.

“You have to grow up sooner or later. There will be no more rumbles.”

He continued: “I’d like to go to some art shows, I’d like to go to a greasy spoon and have a nice fry up, double bubble.

“When I get released I’m still not really going to be free, I’m gonna have a tag on my ankle, I’m going to be very controlled.

“At nighttime in the hostel I will get my big canvas out and get creative. By the time I leave I’ll have 30 of 40 art pieces and I’ll put a show on.“

When asked about his “celebrity status” by the parole board, Bronson said he didn’t enjoy it any more but had used the media to expose what he considered to be “wrongdoing” against him.

He said: “You take my fish and chips off that menu, I will expose it.”

Bronson also revealed there were talks for another movie about his life – although he refused to say who would play him in the film.

He also said he wanted to release a book as well as carry out TV interviews.

Bronson added: “No one’s going to stop me from saying what I want to say.

“I’m not proud of my life, but I’m certainly not ashamed of it.“

Bronson was sent to jail for armed robbery in 1974 and has stayed inside because of violence committed in prison.

A decision on his future will be made later this month.
