Fucking Slappers!

Nothing like some light Thursday Night viewing….

Tonight : Mugging for Kicks ITV, 10pm

First off this one was misleadingly titled, as it wasn’t about mugging but rather “Happy Slapping” – the new youth craze which involves slapping random persons in public and filming the assaults on mobile phones. I remember a workmate showing me the spectacle on his phone and I must admit to laughing at the audacity of these guys. What I had seen on the phone was kiddie play compared to what they covered in last night’s programme – these fucking bell-ends were going round slapping people off their bikes, knocking people unconscious, bursting people’s eardrums and – in one particularly fucked-up instance – setting fire to blokes in the street!

Of course there were links made to shows like Jackass and Dirty Sanchez, with only a tenuous attempt to differentiate between consensual violence and the more conventional variant – it’s as if the programme- makers took one look at the retardation binding the shows with the Happy Slappers and yelled “AHA!”. To their credit though, they did stress the “don’t try this at home” message emphasised by the makers of such shows.

One of the culprits was boasting about how hilarious this all was, as if they were playing nowt but a harmless game of football or Knockdown Ginger. Interestingly when they interviewed this twat and an accomplice, his accomplice (a white dude, judging from the blur) had his face obscured whilst he – a black guy – was fully exposed to millions of viewers. Was such selective anonymity mere sloppiness, or part of a media attempt to conflate this crimewave with a particular ethnic group, thus precipitating our culture of fear? (Mikey Moore way well be a suspect man with a questionable agenda, but he hit that pretty much on the head in Bowling for Columbine.) Admittedly black kids make up a sizeable amount of the Happy Slapper movement, but they’re hardly the sole progenitors – I wonder what the programme makers were trying to accomplish with that segment.

At the same time, a white youth was also interviewed in another part of the show with full facial exposure, so it could have been a directorial oversight – who knows?

Watching this programme I couldn’t help but contemplate a)how similar this seemed to the activities of the Droogs in A Clockwork Orange and b)why the fuck we have stupid gun control laws in this country….

I then changed the channel for my (semi-)regular viewing of…..

Question Time BBC1, 10:35pm

This had some link to the previous programme as one of the topics up for discussion was the decision of some shopping centres to ban the wearing of youth apparel, such as hoodies and baseball caps etc. on their premises. As silly a movie as I think this is (bad for business, y’see) it’s perfectly acceptable for them to set their own standards on the matter. However, the Labour panellist (Harriet Harman) thought it’d be a spliffing idea for the government to instigate a similar clampdown to stop the general populace feeling “insecure” – haha!

Whilst I harbour my fair share of contempt for chavs and rude boys/gyals in general, the implications of her suggestion were rather disturbing ….

…. then again, that’s what happens when the populace give Labour cunts power over their lives (again)!

In light of such borderline-totalitarian talk of “taking measures”, thank fuck for Tory Boy* Boris Johnson. He raised my laughter with his talk of “feral youths” and the like – and my applause when he stressed the difference between private and governmental regulation of dress codes. Naturally Labour Girl did a back-pedal and claimed she wasn’t trying to suggest a state mandate on the dress code of the citizenry – hyeah right! With talks of the ID card scheme being reactivated, one wouldn’t put anything past these totalitarian twats!

All in all an evening of light entertainment, no?

*MRDA does not sanction the Conservative Party any more than he does Labour – both remain cunts in his eyes, mmkay?
