First laugh of the day!
One thing nobody can do DD is accuse most Brits of having no sense of humour, even in adversity.
I see one MP is already complaining about the sentencing of the rioters saying they are too harsh. He said that it should be a about restorative justice and not retribution.
Would it surprise you to learn that the MP is a bleeding heart Liberal?
One lowlife got 4 years for using Facebook to incite riots. I think that sounds fair enough as long as he does the full four years which we know he wont.
The 'doctored' internet picture of thieves sneaking out of the window of number 10 is a great laugh but the reality is that members of parliament and especially government ministers are highly unlikely to be burgled, robbed or mugged whereas the most vulnerable members of society are.
When crimes such as these are commited the deed often has a very significant and long lasting effect on the victim and in the unlikely event of the perpetrators actually being caught and prosecuted they more often than not walk away with a slap on the wrist instead of a custodial sentence even when they are repeat offenders.
I often wonder how detached from the everyday grim realities of urban life some of these expense junkie government ministers are because if similar crimes affected them in any way we'd soon see some tougher sentencing guidelines being issued to magistrates and judges.
Please explain why my post was removed as it was not offensive in the least except perhaps to narrow minded people!
The sad thing LB is that these appeals will be upheld
s will be upheld .
Is it the Brits or just the English?
I ask this because oddly enough no Irish, Scottish or Welsh town or City was plagued with the scum rioters.In fact the Scots reckon through the good work of the Strathclyde Police most of their scum yobs have been brought under control.
As for punishment it beggars belief that anyone, a Lib or what, can have the affront to suggest any sentence is too hard for these wicked vandals. What planet do these do gooders live on? It's probably their naievety in the first place that causes these yobs to think they can get away with it.
The one big question that I and my mates ask is why do these yobs have "Human Rghts" when they have absolutely no regard whatsoever for anyone else's Human Rights?
Whilst I am no advocate of Sharia Law it does make you wonder if perhaps the Muslims have got it right??????
Believe me, it gets worse if that's possible ...... ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Actually the comments at the bottom of the vid are brilliant!. I'll say no more because they are not PC but dam good anyway!
Too Bl##dy wet up here DD to go rioting on the streets
I did read of a couple of folk (Glasgow area I think) who were charged with inciting trouble on Facebook, they seemed to have got hold of them pretty quick I'm glad to say. There were reports in Scottish newspapers of some stolen gear, t.v.s etc being shipped up and sold on the cheap in some areas. Seems very organised as the papers were referring to lorry loads and not just one or two items.
The Strathclyde cops might be doing a good job but I wouldn't like them to get complacent, not sure about "most of their scum yobs" under control. Nice thought though
Back in the 70s I spent 3 years working in Croydon and know the Reeves Furnishing store well. It was a bit like a Grace Bros place from "Are you being served", reasonable quality with good old fashioned service. Gone forever now thanks to those low lifes.
I just hope the do gooder softies don't object to the long sentences our judiciary dish out here.
