I thought Darcus Howe came across as an absolute wankstain in that interview.
This is lovely:
Also, interesting article:
"Alexis Bailey, 31, a worker at a primary school, admitted being part of a mob that tried to loot an electrical shop in Croydon. Bailey, who earns £1,000 a month at Stockwell Primary School, south London, left court with a newspaper over his face. A headline about “copycat cretins” covering his eyes, he walked into a lamp-post."
I wonder whether that charity is breaching its charter.
I certainly wouldn't be gift-aiding my donation.
They're CRACKING DOWN on the looters, then. C4 news showed a magistrates court running 24 hours in Manchester, and one 19 year old boy getting 4 months in prison for stealing a violin.
I wonder how months you get for a double bass.
GMP are going posting names, addresses and D.O.B on Twitter of those charged. Which some people seem to be appalled about - apart from it's the same information that can be found in any newspaper if they choose to print it and available to public on the website.
Post Of The Week
That could quite possibly be the best thing ever posted on the Internet
Given we don't have a TV ratings thread, I guess this should go in here. Hourly breakdown of BBC News 24 viewing figures from Tuesday:
06:00 - 156k (6.7%)
07:00 - 170k (3.6%)
08:00 - 290k (4.7%)
09:00 - 746k (10.9%)
10:00 - 922k (13.3%)
11:00 - 866k (12.7%)
12:00 - 868k (11.7%)
13:00 - 543k (6.9%)
14:00 - 801k (11.3%)
15:00 - 865k (11.6%)
16:00 - 959k (10.6%)
17:00 - 1.16m (9.1%)
18:00 - 893k (4.9%)
19:00 - 1.03m (5.1%)
20:00 - 1.77m (7.9%)
21:00 - 1.70m (7.1%)

23:00 - 1.20m (10.7%)
00:00 - 788k (13.2%)
I'm pretty sure the figures between 7pm and 11pm were more curiosity viewings than anything else but STILL!

We eat, we screw, we DRINK
Now that's a lifestyle I can get on-board with!
I like that British society has apparently regressed to a FERAL STATE without our even NOTICING!
Ann Coulter is an absolute TWAT and so is Bill O'Reilly and both always HAVE BEEN.
Just ask Joy Behar.
I've just grown to laugh at Ann Coulter, no one takes her seriously anyway. Bill O'Reilly on the other hand in being a dick NON-SHOCK
Why does Ann Coulter permanently look like she's about to giggle?
How come everyone knows who these people are? I don't think I've ever seen them in my life.
Has Ann Coulter been gained her entire education on the contemporary British working classes from listening to one Pulp record?
Ann Coulter is quite famous for being a right wing LUNATIC (and of course one of the best selling polemicists in the USA :daf: )
I managed to miss the riots ENTIRELY as I was in Berlin for the entire duration, without phone or internet so I managed to pretty much miss it all entirely, and came back a bit FOR REAL when people were telling me about it. I didn't actually believe the extent of it until I googled it, and then I was pretty much completely shocked and disgusted. I went to a punk night on Thursday night, that was full of actual proper punks, and even they (massively pro-anarchy obv) didn't have a lot of time for the rioters, the feeling was very much "if it isn't politically motivated WHATS THE POINT".
The riots were RIGHT in my yard though, scarily so - most of my friends pretty much didn't sleep for 2 days when it happened most heavily. Something that was really nice though, was that in Dalston which is basically made up entirely of Turkish people, young hipsters and fashion gays with no money and African people, the Turkish men defended the entire high street, and massively prevented much damage from taking place (literally chasing people away with baseball bats), so there was a huge effort by the local community to say thanks to the Turks in the area on Saturday, which for such a slightly odd mix of people that never usually mix in their own community (aside from going to a Turkish restaurant) I thought was really sweet.
I don't think I will ever properly understand it though as I missed it entirely. So many people I know have taken it all massively personally and are currently extremely ashamed to be a Londoner.
I was ashamed on the day of the riots but am now more proud and protective than ever
And people accuse certain internet gays of HYPERBOLE and OVERREACTION
cwej how do you not know Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly?
Although I'd suggest your life is improved by not knowing them and you should try and keep it that way
He's CHANGED HIS FUCKING TUNE
I thought it was all down to PURE CRIMINALITY and WICKEDNESS
He remembered he'd used the "broken Britain" slogan in his election pledge and thought this would be an opportune moment to BRING IT UP.
Well I've just been told that Bill O'Reilly presents a Fox News show, so I'd say it's a safe bet MOST of the UK wouldn't know who he was, in the same way as no-one in the US knows who MOIRA STEWART is?
Yes, but we have the INTERNET these days.
I know Bill O'Reilly from Charlie Brooker's Screen/News Wipe
I have never ever heard of Ann Coulter though. I try to keep right-wing american nutjobs out of my life.
I think Ann's biggest moment on Moopy was when she insulted Barbra on The View when she was promoting her last book. She really says the most ridiculous thing so she can get a rise out of people which is why she always has a smirk on her obnoxious face. Also everyone should watch her interview with Matt Lauer.
This Coulter creature is unbearable. From that ONE clip I have deduced that she'll come out with ANY OLD SHIT to sell her books.
I know who these people are. I have seen the odd clip, but on the whole am QUITE CONTENT to never really indulge their existence. Although it makes me happy to live in BROKEN BRITAIN when I do.
Given how BROKEN our society is, I managed to get to work PRETTY EASILY this morning. I didn't encounter a SINGLE PERSON eating, drinking or screwing on my WAY IN.
My favourite Ann Coulter story (which is still ongoing) is the saga of her and GOProud, who are an utterly ludicrous group for 'gay conservatives'. Basically they're a bunch of self-haters who support any Republican (including gay-hating ones) as long as they keep their tax breaks etc etc; as far as I'm aware they don't support any ACTUAL gay rights policies. Anyway, last year they held a convention and invited noted anti-gay loudmouth Ann Coulter as the keynote speaker, describing her as "the right-wing Judy Garland" (). She turned up, called them a bunch of HORRIBLE FAGGOTS to their faces, and they clapped and gave her thousands of dollars for the privilege
A couple of weeks ago they appointed her to their ADVISORY COUNCIL
Do you think any of those rich Republican gays is on the look-out for a new "business partner"?
Can't we ABUSE her on TWITTER or something
Filth. That would be a non-starter for me. I couldn't go out with someone who had right wing views.
