Let’s Play The Blame Game!

Here’s your scenario:
Lee Bennett of Mangold Way, Erith was walking by a bus stop at the junction between Wolvercote Road and Yarnton Way on August 23 around 10.50am with a friend when a shopping trolley was thrown from the walk-way which crosses over the road.
Lee was hit on the back by the trolley which knocked him to the floor - he tried to get up and collapsed. He was taken to hospital with a suspected broken back but escaped with a badly bruised back and concussion.
Met Police officers are looking to speak to a man and woman spotting arguing on the bridge shortly before the trolley was thrown.
OK, guess the blame!

What, the couple who threw it off the bridge?

Oh, dear me no. That will never do!

I have seen children in the same area playing inside the trollies and throwing each other down the stairs in them. It's time the supermarkets realized this is a problem that could kill someone and stood up and stopped people taking the trolleys out of the store.

Agree. Supermarkets earn a lot of money, so some of it should be used to safeguard customers and residents in the surrounding area. I hope Lee is recovering well.
See! It’s the fault of the supermarket, silly!

What stupidity! Also, knives kill and car run over people, so blame the inanimate objects, not the twats responsible!
The sheeple are so brainwashed now that they're almost ready for the ovens.

Not so much brainwashed, as indoctrinated by the leftie establishment for the last 30 or 40 years that all the little darlings have oodles and oodles of 'rights', but only the nasty reactionary Tories use obscene words like 'responsibility"...

Supermarkets earn a lot of money? I wonder what they spend it on.

"Trollies don't kill people, People kill people."

To misquote a well known phrase, or saying.

It's the food industry that makes people FAT. It's the knife manufacturers (and other sharp, evil things like scissors) that are KILLING people. Likewise, it's ASDA's fault that people are chucking themselves off motorway motorway bridges or multi-storey car parks in shopping trollies. When will people wake up and realise that it's not MY fault, it's YOURS!?

I fucking well despair sometimes, I really do.

Surely it's Mrs Thatcher's fault?

FT-perhaps the phrase "tough on trollies,tough on the causes of trollies" is more apt?

It started in the courts...

""Trollies don't kill people, People kill people." "

:D

"Surely it's Mrs Thatcher's fault?"

Yes, quite a slip. More indoctrination needed!
