anti-speed camera cunts.
just for the sheer incredulity of it.
What a fucking "I was born into a life of privilege but in an ironic twist I am rebelling against it" tosser. And his dad is a nazi to boot.
and I don't see that ALL Pro-smoking protestors are wrong.
I'm moderately pro-smoking in certain circumstances. Not necassarily because I want people to smoke, but because it's one of the libertarian issues we are presently facing.
if you want to smoke and it isn't affecting others then go ahead and light up. it's just an issue of what classes as affecting others.
i'm reducing my tab intake right now but realsie that as soon as i go to a club or pub it'll be hard but meh that's the law.
thats not really rebelling against priviledge.
Who sits on a deckchair outside from six in the morning til eight at night to prevent a wall being knocked down.
If you get within a few metres of her she stands up and glares at you until you back away. I think she just likes fighting the council for the sake of it.
big organisation who actively campaign and claim that smoking isn't really a problem or harming anyone tho? me no think so. i know lots of people that smoke, but thankfully no fucker sad enough to join an organisation.
Also, the two people who sit outside savers in Ely and mumble something about two high court judges. Actually, only one of them sits. And that's because she's in a wheelchair. But that's not the point. Or is it?
you shouldn't have broken the law in the first place, muppet.
in punishing yourself twice by not eating?
she told my incredibly moralistic vegetarian friend that he was a total scumbag evil cunt because he wasn't a vegan. She was very scary.
Protesting a year or two ago when some library staff were unfairly sacked. They were actually right, and the staff were reinstated, but I got the feeling that a lot of the protesters were trustafarians having a 'fight the power' moment, rather than students actively concerned about the library.
What evidence do you have that suggests this?
But about the protest, no evidence as such - it was a feeling, based on people I chatted to, and the fact I never saw any of the protesters in the library. I remember the union sending out emails portraying the college as some kind of big evil organisation that tramples workers' rights etc. Bit silly - SOAS is an incredibly liberal place, but to some folks they were The Enemy, up there with Nike and McDonalds or something. Kind of I've-just-read-No-Logo-and-I-want-to-protest-something.
sorted this out, but the sight of the SOAS SU being covered in Coke cans was always particularly humourous. In a way.
because they don't eat yummy meat.
not always anyway.
although i have no idea who NAMBLA are.
I dont like CND either.
North American ManBoy Love Association.
They protest that age should not be a factor when deciding who you have sex with.
next in this series of threads:
pederasts you dont like
wikipedia never lies.
but this has a ring of truth to it.
what a horrible organisation. they want to rape children. urgh.
the M is molesting the B!
more CND love please
they get me into gigs for free
SHAC get me around europe for free
Saturday jobs have changed.
It's a great thing to shout
"BRING THE TROOPS HOME"
Get over it, you useless egotistical prick.
he is great and hardly a prick.
reactionary idiot who seeks to cause controversy.
What is the guy trying to achieve, other than to get himself on telly every five minutes? Unless he's some kind of Timelord who can turn back time and prevent the invasion, he's just wasting his time. The time to oppose the war was when the votes were being held - now he's just a guy getting off on his celebrity.
Whether the UK was right or wrong to support the US invasion in the first place is a different matter. At the risk of being called a 'reactionary idiot' by some lame-o, I think that the UK was put in an impossible position by the US Govt - we would not have deposed Saddam unless the US had invaded first, but as we are supposedly Allies of the US, we pretty much had to support them, even if we would have preferred another approach. And yes, the current situation in Iraq is a bloody mess, but it's still better than what Saddam was doing to the population. That said, I now think that we should pull our troops out and let the Iraqis massacre each other until they find some kind of equilibrium.
Thousands of students with nothing better to do, clogging up the streets because they disagree with the war. Fair enough, give it a try, like they did the first time.
But at least learn from your mistakes. It didn't do anything last time, did it?
Walking around the streets, to show you disagree with something must have the most dazzling history, and I'll be sure to research it sometime.
Or, maybe I'll carry on thinking: 'Oh, stop making everyone else's life difficult to rest your conscience, you horrible, beardy students.'
I'd like to charge at them all with horses and rubber bullet guns.
you said you are, but what am I?
he doesnt fancy you
I went out on the streets to express my beliefs. I'd do it again, given the chance. And if you have a problem with that, then go fuck yourself, and spit on the statute of human rights while you do it.
The Countryside Alliance for pretty obvious reasons
Legalise Cannabis protesters - I actually agree with legalising cannabis but there are so many more important things one could protest about that people who spend time protesting for it just anger me.
The Socialist Worker's Party - during the Anti-war marches a few year's back they seemed more interested in recruitng members and selling papers than actually stopping the war. I don't even think any oil companies were quite so blatant in their attempts to profit from the Iraq War.
the Student Socialist Party issued a leaflet suggesting we, the workers, give our aid money to... the Sri Lankan Socialist Party.
somehow got £400 a year car insurance for being a sortof-member of the Countryside Alliance. Score!
till they are protesting far from my area !
I thought it was just a product of the South Park's writer's twisted imagination. That's disturbing.
You're right though: PETA are completely moronic. Not so much their message, as the way they go about things...
