Posted in: 2 million state workers to strike in Britain on Wednesday See in context

Yes, there will be delays to flights, hospital appointments etc. but that is down to the workers, not the government. The way I see it, NHS workers striking could well put a number of lives in danger and shorten others - it's a very selfish thing to do. You want to complain about delays and such? Take it up with the unions, not the government.

It must be said, I saw Shoko Nakagawa and hoped it to be a live-action Gurren Lagann movie. However, this does look pretty damn cool :P

OT: I personally think it's terrible he got away with it for three years before he was caught.

Posted in: Londoners strike back with 'Operation Riot Clean-up' See in context

I was genuinly fearing for my brother last night. He's at University in Wolverhampton - houses and shops close to him were broken into and robbed and people protecting themselves assulted. It's absoutely SICK!

The thing that really annoys me about this is that I can put money on none of them knowing why they're rioting. Most of them are just using it as an excuse to ruin the lives of hundreds of people.

Posted in: Christmas comes early to London's top stores See in context

Let me say this, as a Brit...

We have to open our Christmas shops early so that Muslims can buy their Christmas things before Ramadan. Then, we can't put "Merry Christmas" on signs because it might offend them. To me, this just doesn't seem logical.

Note: I'm not racist or religionist - in fact, I'm the total opposite.

@FireyRei

It's not "righteous". By putting him to death, how are you any better than he is? If ending a lfe deserves death then shouldn't those who put him to death resign themselves to it to?

Okay, I have to voice an opinion now. Otherwise it will just fester in my mind.

This man killed 16 people. Yes, it is an unforgivable crime; but by punishing a killer with death, how they any better than him? If ending a life deserves death, shouldn't those who put him to death also suffer? Stop lowering yourselves to the same level.
