Once the remission rules are taken into account, that is the equivalent of a sentence of nearly 18 years. It is about what you would expect to get if you committed a rape of an eight year old child. By my very rough calculations the cost of imprisoning him, ignoring altogether legal and police costs, has been about £330,000. His offence has been that he won't wear clothes in public.
Drawing from an uncomfortable Position.
I thought -
We each have to deal with our discovery of what we are. Steve's method is to go around undressed: 'I wanted to express that purity of what I am in the most obvious way.' So far his obviousness, or obliviousness, has cost him and the taxpayer nine years in prison.
My head aches: I banged it on a car door, pre-

It is a fight that has cost him even his children, but fresh out of prison yet again, the Naked Rambler vows to continue his long battle for the right to be nude.
Five minutes in the presence of Stephen Gough and you almost forget he’s naked. Sitting politely on a towel, gaunt and animated, he speaks passionately about freedom and truth, and then about more prosaic matters, such as how he misses having pockets.

Lukwesa Burak switches over to AL JAZEERA TV ‘The Naked Rambler’s favourite news anchor woman leaves Sky Television News and moves to Al Jazeera.’
Greg Richards reported on the Digital Spy forum recently: “Can't believe Lukwesa is now gone (From Sky TV News) too, she was a great asset to the channel.”
Yes, Lukwesa may have gone to find greener pastures on the Al Jazeera English Channel but our bonnie lassie from Zambia will never forget the day that she made the global news headlines herself too courtesy of the Naked Rambler Stephen Gough. Watch again as Lukwesa just can’t keep it together in this classic YouTube video from 9th June 2015. Twitter Page

Last Friday Andrew Hasson photographed Stephen Gough for the Sunday Times after his release from Winchester Prison, where he had spent most of the time in solitary confinement. Gough, 56, is popularly known as the Naked Rambler, and is Britain’s most high-

Fancy spending some time relaxing with a bunch of naked Germans? It’s easy: head to one of the many saunas in winter, or a park or lake in summer.

A man who has spent 10 years in prison because he goes naked in public has told the BBC he will continue his protest even if it means he has to spend the rest of his life in custody.
The former Director of Public Prosecutions Lord (Ken) Macdonald QC says it is not in the public interest for Stephen Gough to be prosecuted as he does not pose a danger to the public. Mr Gough, known as the "Naked Rambler", was released from Winchester Prison on 14 August, aged 56, having served half of a 30-

Is it hypocritical to keep jailing the Naked Rambler when some of our greatest minds were applauded for getting their kit off?
Stephen Gough, the Naked Rambler, spends 10 years in prison. A 14-
The nude is a historical celebration of our intrinsic beauty, the epitome of fine art, from classical statuary and Michelangelo to Spencer Tunick’s contemporary installations and Marc Quinn’s Trafalgar Square plinth statue of the naked Alison Lapper. There is barely a public building unadorned with a naked sculpture, yet we criminalise the real thing. Punishing people for being as God intended (or whomsoever you think made you) is itself a perversion – and actually sexualises the naked body in an extraordinarily unhealthy way.
Stephen Gough shares his principle on Naked Rambling and explains why he refuses to put his clothes on in public.
“Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgement; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion”.

Stephen Gough was arrested while heading back home to his mother’s house in Eastleigh after enjoying only 4 weeks of freedom on the road, mostly in the sunshine, at various locations on the south coast of England (Fairlight nudist beach) and later hiking in the Cotswolds.
Naked Rambler supporter, Augustus said, “I spent a few hours talking with Stephen today, then I went to move my car and rendezvous with him near Twyford around 4pm -
Mr Gough’s supporters have taken the news of his arrest stoically. G. Newman said, “I don't pretend to understand Steve's thinking but he is a brave man following his own path and I wish him good luck.”
Others have been more scathing, P. Davis, “Police are overstretched and undermanned? Yeah right. If they can spend a million pounds and waste time depriving a British citizen of ten years of his freedom for doing nothing offensive then we are not as civilised a society as I had hoped.”
The Naked Rambler Stephen Gough has reportedly made an appearance at either Basingstoke or Aldershot Magistrates Court in Hampshire on Saturday, although confirmation is still sketchy at the time of going to press.

What’s the Buzz? September 15th 2015 Western Daily Press -
Several of the regional newspapers online have today commented on Stephen Gough’s arrest in Twyford on Friday and his brief appearance at Basingstoke Magistrates Court over the weekend.
Bristol & Avon’s ‘Western Daily Press’ was our pick of the bunch with a new photo gallery of eight previously unseen images of the Naked Rambler in various stages of undress and some very colourful reporting by the west country press editor: ‘Wacky Stephen’. (Not that we’re complaining. They have a right to their opinion!)
The Daily Echo was the first off the mark at 10:00am today with this news stub: “AN EASTLEIGH man known as the “naked rambler” has been arrested. Police have confirmed Stephen Gough was arrested and charged with breaching his anti-
