So yay. London will be hosting to 2012 Olympic Games. There’s a few things to watch out for though, because todays events leave you with mixed emotions. What started as a peaceful protest by Live 8 has been royally f**ked up by a hardcore of nutters.
The picture on the right is from Sky News. This guy is smashing up – with an iron bar – a completely innocent car belonging to a local resident. They weren’t doing anything wrong – they were just trying to get home when some f**king pillock starts to break their windows. He didn’t even have the balls to show his face. I dunno about you, but I’m completely behind the police when I see pictures like this.
Give the coppers a stun-gun or something for gawds sake. Don’t get me wrong – 99.9% of the protestors are peaceful, and are probably horrified by these images, which is not what they wanted to portray at all. Unfortunately there’s always a hardcore of plebs who get a kick from violence. They’re usually the 20 or so at the front with balaclavas on. Click here for a shining example.
Again – I don’t want to detract from the peaceful protesters who are trying to put their message across. They’re doing a fantastic job, but their message is being tainted by these nutters. Let’s just hope they’re not around in 2012 when the London Olympics start!
Congrats once again London!
