“We had no idea how to handle them without offending our agonised liberal consciences. They saw this and exploited it ruthlessly.” Lefty UK writer Monbiot tries to reach out to some “victims” and finds out they really don’t give a crap about anything but swiping his stuff. “…my anarchist beliefs battled my bourgeois instincts, and lost.” Re-distribute OPM but not mine, eh?

Monbiot’s inner anarchist loses everyday when he wipes his bourgeois
backside with loo paper.

When he does, one could say his name is finally on the roll.

“Do read the whole thing. It brings a tear to the eye.”

Tears of laughter, I’m sure!

Loved the comments. Monbiot’s Moonbats.

These are not well people.

I bet the two thugs would have been a lot more reasonable if Monbiot or one his pals had had a gun. Of course, since this was Britain, Monbiot would now be serving life if he’d had a gun, so I guess you could say Britain’s stringent gun laws kept George Monbiot out of jail. Isn’t he lucky.

What’s this? A Brit occupy movement is attracting thieves and thugs?
Did they learn nothing from the American occupy debacle?
Now they’re upset about it.

Some one commented, “Wait, if this is a common treasury how can anyone steal anything? Surely these are held in common, for whomsoever needs them.”
That is what I was wondering. I thought this “commune” was about sharing and the common good.
Can anyone give me an example of where this commune, occupy, socialistic, communistic living has been a success? Anyone anyone, Bueller? Obama? Reid? Anyone??
Yep, you cant fix stupid.

Silly Navyvet2 — you thought that “common property” meant that all property was common. No, in this case, they wanted everyone to ask Big Brother for permission first. If their yoofs would have toed the lib line, they’d have gotten everything they wanted.
