YOU MAY THINK Phillip Adams's week in the Solomons at Auntie's expense was just a junket, justified by more boring detail on the rugby league politics of that benighted spray of land than anyone could wish to know.

You're wrong.

Our Gastropod didn't just slither over the Pacific for sport. He was on a mission from God to reform the Solomons' prison system.
What Phillip Adams discovered there was a harsh 23 hour lock-down regime which, as a result of the LNL visit, has now been substantially modified.

Bless you, Phillip.
