I forgot just the one thing...

At the time of the Terry Jones Qur'an burning idiocy I was a bit blase about it. He was so obviously a massive wanker that there didn't seem to be anything much to say about it. In fact I was fairly thoroughly agreed with the Daily Mash on the subject.

But I forgot. The most basic lesson. The one that anyone who's had contretemps with racist organisations should remember.

Idiots. Copy. Each. Other.

One man in a grey Adidas tracksuit and white trainers, who has a blue cloth wrapped around his head as a burka-style mask, makes a series of obscene gestures towards the book as it burns.

Laughing, the tracksuited gang shouts “This is for the boys in Afghanistan. September 11, international burn a Koran day, for all the people of 9/11.

“This is how we do it in Gateshead, right.”

One man then attempts to add more fuel, but instead sets the plastic petrol can on fire. He then kicks the book across the yard, leaving a trail of flames which he is forced to hastily stamp out.

For the record: no it isn't, you twunt. That's why you got arrested. For an encore, the EDL turned up to an SWP branch meeting to try and assault my comrades, and assaulted two Irish Centre members of staff for good measure.

What a bunch of twunting twunty twuntbags.

In short: copycat crimes are a symptom of people who haz teh dumm in the worst kind of way.

I thought all that EU development money to build the subway and the Baltic and that giant shopping mall was supposed to give people stuff to do that wasn't almost setting their feet on fire? Gateshead, I am disappoint.

I used to live in Deckham. I can confirm that there is nothing to do apart from hate non-existent minorities in Deckham. In order to get to the BALTIC or the ironically named Metro Centre, you'd have to walk for half an hour or get a bus for 10 minutes. It's a lot to ask.

Occasionally someone gets murdered at the Greyhound in Felling, and there's always the ritual 'steal a car and set fire to it on the bankies'at weekends, but that's kind of it.
