I Really Don’t Think Society Needs His Contribution, ‘Useful’ Or Otherwise...

Nick Cotter, defending, said his Oxford-born client had battled alcoholism since a family trip to Pakistan in 2004 when his parents tried to arrange for him to marry a woman five days after meeting her.
She must have been a 'two-bagger’…
Mr Cotter added: “When sober he’s actually a very decent young man, very articulate.

“He’s someone who in fact if he can kick this alcohol addiction could make a very useful contribution to society.”
Oh, really? So, he’s a doctor, an engineer, an entrepreneur?
On his arrest the 28-year-old businessman, who runs a company offering discount restaurant vouchers, told Pc Aidan Donohoe: “When one of your soldiers gets killed in Afghanistan I laugh.

“I hope it’s your brother
.”
You know what? I think I’ll pay full price for my restaurant meals, if the alternative is having people like this in the country.

I have no truck with these illegal wars, but we should give the boot to the religion with no name.

Fair comment ..

Cos I always enjoy a good belly laugh when the Taliban, Taliban wannabes & sympathisers get vapourised by attacking British-crewed Apache helicopters too (plenty of clips on You Tube) .. ;)

Ho ho ho. Very droll. And to think we send troops there so schoolgirls might not get acid thrown in their faces.

Now fuck off over there, there's a good chap, and be a target for our drones.

We should certainly stop pandering to it and treating it with kid gloves.

I suppose it's slightly better than having them come over here claiming persecution. Though, not much, if I'm honest.
