Tottenham Rioters, your attention please

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

You have claimed to be wanting justice. How about a little logic instead…

There were 4 shots fired in the incident you are rioting about. Two by police. Now, here comes the logic.

Two must have been fired by Mark Duggan. This is a mathematical fact.

Due to the fact he died of his injuries within minutes (another fact) what do you think the chances are that, after being shot, he went out, bought a gun, and fired it twice at police. All without leaving the cab?

OK so for those hard of thinking among you (I include all of the rioters here), there is zero chance of this, unless he happened to have hitched a ride with an arms dealer moonlighting as a cabbie. OK, so we can rule that out.

So, we know for a fact he had a gun with him. That alone means he was due for arrest, and isn’t the ‘poor innocent man’ that some are trying to portray him as.

So, moving on, we know he had a gun. Now, we know he was so badly injured he didn’t make it out of the cab alive. So, taking that into account, lets look at the two possible scenarios.

1) He fired twice at police, who returned fire, and killed him.

2) Police fired at him for no reason, causing significant injury. After which he got out the gun, and accurately fired at the police, who didn’t return fire, but simply stood around until he stopped firing and died of his injuries.

Because, people, those are the ONLY two possibilities.

Logically you are probably going to have to admit, that the chances of scenario 2 are unlikely.

So, basically, you are rioting because police shot someone who shot at them first.


But then, the fact you are rioting and looting said that anyway.


O2 network outage

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

So, right now I am unable to use my rather expensive iphone as anything more than a small brick, due to an 18 hour outage of the O2 data network.

You know, O2, I wouldn’t mind, Im a techie, I know how things can break, but when your service status page says – oh wait, you don’t even have a service status page, I have to find information third hand from the internet. Of course if I called your customer service line – no wait, thats so busy I get routed to people that have no clue whats going on. I paid 400 pounds for this phone, the least I expect is for you to tell me why it isn’t working and en expected repair time when its broken at your end.



Custarding of Mandelson

Friday, March 6th, 2009

A protester seems to have, today, thrown a load of custard powder at a British MP in protest about a new runway at Heathrow. She is reported to have said that members of the government were ‘unaccountable to the public and had sided with big business against the interests of the public’ in the matter of building a new runway.

Hold on, do you want to THINK for a moment you stupid stupid woman. If UK businesses in the area need a third runway, what do you think they need it for? Plane-spotting? Do you think we just have too much concrete and need to get rid of some? Or is it possibly for business reasons, making these businesses able to do more business which will make them able to grow and to – wait YES – EMPLOY MORE PEOPLE. Because obviously employing more people is bad for the ‘interests of the public’, cos we’d all love to be unemployed.

Just because some hundreds of people may be inconvenienced, maybe some of them will have to move house, think of the millions who will benefit. The jobs, the economic boost, and people able to feed their children. Now stop being so selfish about a strip of concrete and do something useful with your life, protest on sensible things when you have thought them through to the end of the process, rather then running screaming into the attack every time you have a kneejerk reaction about the first stage of a process!


Attack on the Sri-Lankan cricket team

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

Well, my first rant is aimed at the Sri-Lankan cricket team. Kudos to them for actually trying to play cricket in Pakistan, dispite the problems, and I hope they catch the gunmen that tried to shoot up their bus. But now they all need a DAMNED GOOD SLAP.

One of the team coaches was just interviewed on TV, saying that he was disgusted that the security was so lapse that it could happen, and where were all the police? Almost a fair comment, until you look and see that SIX police were KILLED saving the team’s collective asses. Where were the police? BETWEEN YOU AND THE BULLETS – DYING!

Followed up by an interview with one of the cricket players saying he was ‘glad to be back in Sri-Lanka and happy nobody was seriously hurt’. Except for the six police and one driver killed! Those people DIED to keep you safe, show a bit of goddamn respect and gratitude for these people and their families!
