Gough has spent the past six years naked in a Scottish prison since his arrest in 2006 for breach of the peace as he tramped across Scotland stark bollock naked. Gough was initially handed a seven-month-term but every time the oddball mentalist was released from prison he’d stroll straight out of the nick as naked as the day he was born and promptly re-arrested by waiting rozzers.
But yesterday the Scottish authorities, clearly sick of the sight of Gough’s old fella have tried a different approach. The police have allowed the eccentric ex-marine to just continue on his nude journey south, if he can make it over the border into England without a complaint made by the public he will finally be free of the Scottish judicial system.
“My opinion is that the police have thought ‘the guy’s not going to give up so let’s have a think about it” Naked Gough said outside Perth Prison.
“Something has changed and it is good news for me. What they were doing before was pre-empting complaints and now they are not.”
Mr Gough says he is still determined to live his life without clothes.
