Chutzpah, Thy Name Is....

Janet Street-Porter. Writing in the 'Indy', she opines:
Walk around some city streets and you sense low-level aggression. People are more upfront when something annoys them. They scream and they swear.
Well, she should know...
No further action will be taken against broadcaster Janet Street- Porter over claims that she racially abused a neighbour of her Clerkenwell home. The former newspaper editor was told by police today its inquiries had ended. Street-Porter, 60, was arrested and questioned on 16 January in connection with an alleged racially aggravated offence.

Kids have always been like that. Old people are becoming more intolerant. This is a moral panic set in train by right wing newspapers. Daily Mail/Express. Crime is getting less.

Any more Guardian clichés?

Nice catch, Julia.

Lefties have preached for years that self-restraint and good manners are 'middle-class' trappings meant to make 'poor' people feel inferior.

But now the yobbo chickens are roosting down Lefty Way, it's a diffrent story.
