We have seen that these events tend to be hijacked by the great unwashed; they are generally unemployed, dirty, vegetarian loonies who think everyone should live in a teepee and eat alfalfa. Essentially they are sociopaths dressed as eco-warriors. They have no demonstrable interest in society or a commitment to it, or they would be nurses or librarians or chicken keepers. Their lifestyles are terribly self-indulgent and reflect the degree of freedom to be whatever you want, without the inconvenient truth that the very world they live in is a product of a complex infrastructure that keeps a lot of the less-able in society from being sidelined and protects the rest of us from invasion.
I don't want to join the anarchists. I don't want to ban cars or planes or banks. What I want is honest politicians, genuine democracy and an understanding that we are the stewards of this planet and should look after it.
I am very angry about the Labour Government and what they have done to us, but bringing inconvenience to Londoners will not change anything. I cannot in all conscience be involved with people who plot violence and disruption. My weapons are my words, and the ballot box and my duty as a free man is to expose and ridicule opression and corruption wherever and whenever I can.
In case some are in doubt as to my manifesto, then I suggest you do one thing to change the way things are done in this country - dump your Television and stop paying your licence fee. You will deprive the Government and the loony left of its propaganda arm -the BBC- by starving it of revenue. That would be a legal way to really change things, but oh,I forgot, you love the football don't you?
As Bill Bailey said "Revolution?...not if the snooker's on"
It looks as though a few of the above mentioned arseholes made what was a very legitimate cause for complaint into an excuse to damage property and provoke confrontation. I am afraid they do the cause no good whatsoever.
Nick Robinson's fawning report on the whole day was beyond a joke. He is totally in love with his job, himself, and the establishment. He is a tosser.
Quote from Daniel Finkelstein:
I think that they have looked back at 5,000 years of human history - at pestilence and famine and disease and degradation, at genocide and civil war, at fear and loathing, at bigotry and ignorance, chauvinism and dictatorship - and concluded that our biggest problem is... shopping.
