NOTORIOUS prisoner Charles Bronson has branded a setback to his parole hearing a “disgrace” as it means he can’t enjoy Christmas dinner with his mum.
But the 69-year-old’s hopes of a Christmas jolly with his mum Eira, from Aberystwyth, have been dashed as the hearing is understood to have been pushed back to next year.
Bronson has spent much of the last half-century behind bars after being caged for armed robbery in 1974.
The fuming inmate has lashed out, calling the setback “jingle f*****g b*****ks”.
In a handwritten letter to WalesOnline from his cell in the high-security HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes he wrote: “I always say: ‘Never plan anything in prison unless it’s an escape’. Because you’re just not in control of your own life.
“This Xmas I was looking forward to dinner with my mother.
“I believed I had a good chance of squeezing out some jam roll (parole) on December 12 – but now that won’t happen ’til 2023.
“That’s how this system ‘works’ – they couldn’t run a p**s-up in a brewery.
“That’s why there are so many suicides inside and why the women left on the outside lose hope.”

Bronson was originally given a seven-year sentence for an armed raid on a Cheshire post office in 1974 from which he netted just £26.18.
But that initial sentence has increased several times over the decades as a result of various violent incidents which saw him assault other inmates and take members of prison staff hostage.
Since changing his surname to Salvador in 2014 – in tribute to the surrealist painter Dali – he’s become a prolific artist, devoting himself to raising money for various charities, writing books, and trying to encourage kids to stay away from crime.
Bronson hopes he will be out of prison by next Christmas for a festive family reunion.
He added: “I’ve given these hypocrites years of good behaviour and they’ve given me nothing back. It’s a disgrace and I’m sick of it,”
“Jingle f*****g b*****s’, I say. But it is Xmas after all, so one must not be angry.”
“Will I make it out for Christmas next year, who knows? But there’s one sure thing – I’ll get out of here one day and it won’t be in a body bag.”
It comes after Bronson has revealed his plans should he be released from HMP Woodhill in a chilling letter exclusively shared with The Sun.
In a letter, the prisoner scribbled out what could be read as a threat.
A Bronson fan named Connor first sent a letter to the criminal when he got wind of the hearing.
He wished the lag luck and asked what he’d do when he finally got a taste of freedom.
Bronson replied: “First thing is a double bubble proper English fry-up.
“Then go collecting whats owing me from all the parasites that have sucked off me for 4 decades.
“Should be fun! Be lucky. Charles Salvador.”
On the outside of the envelope he penned: “Never walk backwards into a bears cave eating a Big Mac!”
