no it made me laugh actually. and then when i saw the picture of him swinging from the cenotaph i nearly pissed myself
The dark side of the moon.
Have a cigar...
UP THE FUCKING ARSE.
Dangerous drivers who have KILLED people get lighter sentences than that.
...from the top of motorway bridges have got similar sentences.
He did a very, very stupid thing. That no-one got hurt was a definite relief.
...ignore me - I've got the wrong dude! I thought Gilmore was the lad who threw the fire extinguisher but he was the one who hung off the cenotaph isn't he?
Sorry - my mistake :)
(But yes 16 months does seem very excessive. Very. He's still an idiot though...)
Haven't actually read the story.
...luckily I worked it out on my own accord first to make myself look less of a plonker...
smashed up top shop, jumped on some cars, set fire to a pile of papers outside the supreme court, threw a bin at the royal convoy
...having actually read the full litany of things he was in court for, it seems that 16 months becomes more and more reasonable.
He seems like an absolute cunt anyroad. Couldn't give a toss how long he's in jail for.
Bit harsh. He'll be ticking away the moments that make up a dull day in there.
Over a year in prison. Hate to be him rytnow.
this about right?
but whatever you think is right, who am I to argue?
the girls went out of their way to make the men think they were older. Sure, the men should have been more suspicious, but there's a limit to how far a culture of distrust should be encouraged.
just comparing what the justice system thinks is fair punishment for property damage compared to personal violation
...if you start down the tedious road of 'THIS PERSON GOT THIS SENTENCE FOR THIS AND THAT'S WAY WORSE' relativism, then you just end up having an excruciatingly tedious debate.
People get lesser sentences for worse crimes all the time. It happens. Gilmour's 16 months is barely worth commenting on in this context...
and all that
It's a posh cunt who threw a bin at a car. It doesn't have any wider ramifications within the robustness of 'justice' or otherwise.
and the bin throwing was discounted anyway
the kid who threw the fire extinguisher got twice as long for the same offence so maybe Charlie Gilmour should actually count himself lucky
I just think there is a weird chink in the law when dealing with politically high profile cases against SYMBOLS and PROPERTY versus oh... I don't know, children and females in particular
Maybe the windows of Topshop were 'asking for it', maybe the Police were - absurd isn't it
I don't think that chink is particularly disruptive here though. This is small, small beer of miniscule significance...
Idiotic comparing sentences like that
That's obviously why his sentence is so long
how do those two work together?
and pretty slow moving
he (and so many others acting like nobs at these events) think that their actions won't have any reprecussions - to put it in clichéd terms, if you're going to do the crime, you have to be prepared to do the time.
Whether or not the "time" is of an appropriate length is another matter, I'm just glad to see he got his punishment as he is most likely a prize testicle.
He was filmed shouting: "They broke the moral law, we're going to break all the laws".
Is there a copyright on this? I'd quite like to use it as lyrics in my rap-metal side project
What an odious little prick.
bet he didn't
it's a long-term project
