Dr Adrian Grounds, Ian Brady's medical witness, said the Moors murderer has told him he "doesn't mind the prospect of living in restricted, confined circumstances".
He also refers to Brady's disciplinary record during his 19 years in jail - which preceded his transfer to Ashworth - and suggests it was not "indiscipline...but an engagement in a series of battles".
Dr Grounds suggests that these "battles" resulted from the official refusal to allow Brady to see Myra Hindley.
Dr Grounds suggests that Brady would avoid making trouble if he went back to jail.
"He is a very astute observer, a strategist; this is somebody with the ability to weigh up what will happen if he misbehaves in prison. He might not care about the consequences - but they would offend his sense of superiority," Dr Grounds said.
