    Default What Sort of a World are we Living in?

    I'm not going to post the link but I've just seen an embedded video on a news website showing somebody getting shot. He later died from his injuries.

    Ok, forgetting the fact that this was an armed criminal, when did it become ok to show snuff movies on the website of a national daily newspaper ?

    Seems like a sick kind of porn and I don't like it.

    Very good idea to show a thief being shot dead if it discourages other thieving scrotes!

    By that measure, you would support the publication of films of aggressive tax avoiders being thrown out of their repossessed houses. Sometimes a little measured dignity is preferable.

    No I wouldn't because for the tenth time tax avoidance, whether aggressive or not, is neither illegal nor even immoral!

    What about the victim's dignity or even safety? If a thief attacks someone in the street or in their victim's dwelling, why should anyone care about the thief's dignity? Feck 'em.

    Best to show it in media popular with thieving scrotes, as has been done.

    I didn't say it is illegal but equally nobody is being shot. It is proportionately different as is the outcome. But the retrospective law (passed by the sovereign parliament you feel so strongly about) is clear that there is an enforceable debt and your distinctly unBritish view would suggest that any enforcement should be filmed to discourage other scrotes. Which is distinctly unBritish.

    In that case we may as well turn your local market place into Chop Chop Square!

    Is this further proof of your support for the Saudi's ?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    These kipper types would be much more comfortable in Saudi. They are terribly unBritish.
