I used to be younger.
It has been noted that in the past I may have sang out loud while on route home after a night out. I may have even sang “Hey Hey We’re the Monkees” while doing the walk with my friends. What I didn’t do however was hang around daily being a constant pain in the arse to residents.
As I get older I notice more and more young teenagers (sometimes younger) with nothing to do other than hang around the local pizza shop, getting pissed and generally make a nuisance of themselves until the very early hours of the morning. We all ask “where are the parents?” But the sad answer probably is that the parents don’t give a hoot.
My thinking then jumped to a computer game I love. The “Call of Duty” games allow you to go into military combat and experience maybe just an inkling of what war might be like. My favourite bit is always using the Sniper Rifle. Then my mind married these two things up.
Drawing together on my experience of sniping in Call of Duty and my severe intolerance of tracksuit wearing, drunken gypos who cause nothing but bother in all the towns and cities across the UK (and no doubt every fecking where else) I propose the following:
If you want to be an arse in the street and cause no end of problems – that’s fine. As long as you consider it fair that you may be shot. Selected persons will be posted on street rooftops and if they spot repeat offenders causing bother, threatening others, fighting, putting people in danger and generally being a feckin arse – they’ll get shot – probably in the leg.
I can supply a complete White Paper if the government want to investigate this further. I’m not sure if this latest policy would make me ever so slightly right wing, and if this thinking has come with age?
