Black cab rapist John Worboys allegedly asked a fellow inmate what to say during a meeting with a clinical psychologist in order to be released by the parole board.

The serial sex attacker supposedly asked convicted robber Matthew Gallagher how he convinced the board to release him from an indeterminate sentence like the one he is currently serving.

He even joked with Mr Gallagher about joining a dating website after his release and living on the outskirts of London where he attacked his victims. 

Matthew Gallagher told the Sunday Mirror: ‘He knew I had already been released from an indeterminate sentence like the one he is serving. He kept asking me what to say to a clinical psychologist at his next assessment.

‘He wanted to know all about the checklist used to assess for psychopathic traits and behaviour and he wanted to know what their version of a personality disorder is. Worboys had heard prisoners were misleading psychologists and he wanted to know all about that.

‘I was surprised he knew so much about complex psychologist language. But one inmate told me he studies anything that will help regain his freedom, even offering financial incentives to his few friends to trawl law books for loopholes.’

The former stripper was convicted of attacks on 12 women at his 2009 trial after ‘sample’ charges were brought by the Crown Prosecution Service. But police believe he assaulted at least 105 between 2002 and 2008.

The Parole Board had decided to free Worboys after finding he had learned ‘not to hide negative thoughts and feelings’ during ‘positive’ treatment with psychologists.

But after two victims appealed against the decision at the High Court the decision was reversed – and the chair of the board was forced to quit.

Mr Gallagher added: ‘The reality is I think he hates women. He was very misogynistic and was always very aggressive about them, often describing women from his past as b*****s.

‘He said “I want to go back to London when I get out”. He said some victims still live in the area and gave a wry smile.

‘Then he said “f*** ’em, they’ve had enough out of me. I’ve done my time”.

‘I told him I didn’t think he’d be allowed to move back to London. He just said: “Oh, well, maybe the outskirts. I’ll go on a dating website, put on my glad rags and go pull some women.”‘

Mr Gallagher, who was released last week, spent four months at HMP Wakefield with Worboys on C wing.
