Nick Moss on Spragg
Spragg is a believer in the common goodNick Moss
"He always seeks social justice and has a strong moral compass, which is ironic because he’s now found himself in a world of criminality. It means that when it comes to living in the camp his story is all to do with the politics of the camp. He is a believer in the common good, and he instigates a kind of protest against the amount of food that the convicts are receiving. Of course, the truth this that this isn’t a place for principles - it’s a place of opportunism, foraging, survival and making do."
