IN an interview with a Sunday newspaper, Jackie Powell spoke out about her relationship with Ian Brady.

The comments came after it was revealed Brady had "died" for several minutes after having a fit in his cell, before being resuscitated.

Ms Powell said in the interview Brady was interested in politics and philosophical issues.

She said: "Four or five hours with Brady is quite intense.

"His conversation is detailed. He never forgets a thing and expects instructions to be followed.

"I go to him when there's an issue around his mental health. He never asks about my life or family and I would never talk to him about those things.

"I'm a go-between between him, his lawyers and Ashworth.

"I liaise with medics because he doesn't communicate with his care team.

"People often ask, 'How can a mother help a child killer like Brady?'

"On a personal level it is sometimes very difficult.

"But on a professional level, I believe every human being has certain rights."

    Ms. Powell doesn't know when to keep quiet. The more she keeps opening her mouth, the more she keeps on making trouble for herself and others. The only people I feel bad for are her kids and her neighbors. They don't have to put up with it. In her words from this article, "His conversation is detailed. He never forgets a thing and expects instructions to be followed." That last statement needs clarification. He expects his instructions to be followed. Also, who cares what his interests are! Brady needs to tell where Keith Bennett's family where Keith is. Honor Mrs. Johnson's wishes.
