And, besides the naked dolls porn scenes or other silly funny moments, there was one particular joke I thought was very spot on. A UN representative of some sort was visiting North Korean Kim Jong-il kindly asking him to show all the areas of the palace so he could see if there were any WMD. If you don’t allow me, he said, I would have to....I would have to....go back!!!! And then, we will send you a letter, in which we'll let you know how angry we are with you!
And that is exactly what is so ridiculous in the western world right now. Look at the UK! Look at what is happening. The public is outraged...’Police are doing nothing!’ they are saying, 'Police are not protecting us!'
But how can they? If they beat those scumbags up, they would get in trouble. If they use the plastic bullets or water cannons or my favourite- CS gas-on them...how much would that same public frown upon them afterwards? Oh, those poor children were pushed into this behaviour by deeply rooted social problems, they will say. Oh no, we closed their youth centres! They had nowhere else to go, so they got bored, poor little....*&&^^%%%s.
So we see endless scenes of looting, where young guys lazily loot shops, taking new trainers, TV screens and whatever else they fancy, while the police are running after them with little sticks, which they can’t even use with enough passion.
At work, in a college, one of our directors said to me once, that things changed so badly these days, that the youngsters don’t feel any fear or respect for authority. 'A few years ago', she said, 'I would walk into a group of students fighting in the corridor and I could tell them to stop and they would listen. Nowadays, they would just tell me to f** off'. Because there are no measures left for the authorities to use against the offending youth. They are too young to arrest and jail them, so David Cameron’s statement, in which he claimed that If they are old enough to be committing this crime, they are old enough to be punished for it has no real value in it, whatsoever. If the looters are young enough, they will go free. They can’t be threatened with parents as parents are just as useless and stupid as their children. They can’t be told they would be expelled from colleges or schools as that would only make them happy. So the police will now spend months analyzing the footage from cameras, mobile phone messages and twitter accounts so that they would arrest these criminals, only to set them free shortly after. Probably with apologies.
And,of course, people already try to justify this mayhem that took over the country. It comes from ‘nothing to lose’ they said. Haven’t I heard this one before? Oh yes. Terrorist have nothing to lose either. It is because of the poverty. It is because of the racism. It is because of the university fees. Honestly? Pleeeeease.
It is so obvious what is going on out there that it is not even worth discussing.I personally am thinking of going to John Lewis for some middle class looting, as one Facebook friend suggested. I fancy some new curtains.
And I absolutely love the image I just saw on TV, of the Sikhs standing outside their businesses on the street, taking the matters into their own hands. Because they know there wont be any help from the police. Not because the police are useless. But because their hands are helplessly tied by the ridiculous liberal, pc bullshit.
So, yes. Let’s analyse why it happened, lets apologize for not providing them with more freedom and more opportunities, maybe give them something free to make them happy, and let’s send them a letter in which we express just how saddened we all are by their naughty behaviour. Let's just bend over, shall we.
Foreign here, foreign there...foreign everywhere.
Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, I then spent 12 years in a wonderful commuter village near London, and recently decided to try an expat lifestyle and relocated to sunny Doha.
Besides this blog, I run a regular culture clash column in AZ Magazine in Baku, Azerbaijan, and freelance for whoever pays me.
