|WAR & PISS
Much indignation when a drunken student (hardly an oxymoron) urinated on a War Memorial recently (Sheffield, 11th October 2009).
Funnily enough, 19 year old Philip Laing had been on the aptly-named Carnage pub crawl for students, which is perhaps preferable to participating in the actual carnage of war. Bear in mind how many soldiers of his age & even younger have died in bloody pointless battle.
Why is relieving nature on an inanimate object, whatever its symbolic significance, considered more offensive than war itself where throughout the ages countless millions have lost their lives? Isn't making water better than making war?
Not dead, just sleeping it off...
|On 26th November 09, a sober, besuited & contrite young but not so hopeful Philip Laing was sentenced to 250 hours Community Service (slave labour by another name?) & ordered to pay £185 costs. It had proved to be an expensive night out on the piss for him.|
