I see where you are coming from, if a little innappropriate as an example - I just hope Nick Griffin doesn't sue you

Things are more like they are now than they ever used to be.

My point is this: the man who overfilled his wheelie-bin is a criminal because...he committed a crime! If you believe it's a petty reason to criminalise someone then, fine, but the law says he is.

My issue is with the hysterical reaction of the media...only 4 inches above the rim! just for an overflowing bin! how ridiculous, 'nanny-state' etc etc.

The media are not the arbitors of moral values...they have a duty to report the news impartially. Also, they are not there to reflect the views of the public who, they assumed, would find the case as ridiculous at the man at the centre of the story.

Where do you draw the line? Where does 'everyday behaviour that won't upset many people' become 'crime'? Look at the speed camera debate - the media can't help being generous to those who break the law becuase they feel they're reflecting the views of their audience and have to be incredulous in the face of what is basically the law of the land.

I chose the most extreme crime I could think of to create an impact...now it's you job to think back to the original story and decide where you draw the line.

Sometimes my satire is quite playful, sometimes I use a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Either, I'm making a point!

Hopefully, only a f**kwit would think I was pro-BNP!!

Yes, Simon, but as I recall you have a history of writing racist stories - I recall once Monkey Woods chastising you for a particularly nasty little dig at African soccer players - where the word 'Niggo' was bandied about.

If I remember correctly you were severely criticized for that racist offering, and here you are again, saying how you hate Jews and that Hitler was 'okay'.

I also see you are encouraging people to run on to the street and punch a 'coloured' member of the public.

What next Simon? What next?

Where does it stop?

I thought you were Pro BNP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice to know how you view me.

On the other hand I totally agree with your views on the distortion of media portrayal and how undbalanced it is. I did the same earlier this week to justify Prince William's jaunt in a Chinook! Not as extreme as yours though!

Nice to see you're still around - thought Monkey Woods was gonna beat you up?

Nah, we talked things thru in a consensual and non-judgemental way and respected each other's personal visions. And I have a 16 ounce hammer.
