Video: Occupy Londoners yukking it up over violence at their camp

posted at 6:41 pm on April 25, 2012 by Morgen Richmond

Violence at an occupy camp? No bloomin’ way! Content warning, for language of course:

Well you know what, when [unintelligible] said at camp, you can’t get any money because one guy blocked it. That’s bollocks, that’s not f–king democracy. You can’t have one guy block a democratic f–king vote. That’s not democracy…

Or…or beat the c–t up that just said I’m not going to give the camp any money. [Evil laugh] Bash him, just bash him up…

It’s a peaceful protest…but it’s not a peaceful camp. And it’s not. And there is violence here, and I’ve had to deal with it…and I’m not enjoying having to deal with all these violent f–kers.

You know Monty Python has made a fortune here in the U.S. because just about everything sounds funnier with an English accent…but there isn’t much to laugh about here. (Except maybe the latest in occupy fashion.) These defenders of democracy are actually right about one thing though: consensus-based decision making where one objector can block an entire motion is bollocks, a recipe for anarchy in fact. But then I suppose that’s the whole point isn’t it?

First???

Darn!

Interesting. They’re tough enough to, apparently, assault people who disagree with them…

…but their ancestors weren’t tough enough to tell the King to f**k off.

MadisonConservative on April 25, 2012 at 6:51 PM

So when the cops finally take the gloves off and beat a few of you $hitbirds senseless it’s going to be a laugh riot????

I can get behind that….

BigWyo on April 25, 2012 at 6:53 PM

blimey, they’re back at it again, t’was like yesterday when they were evicted from the St Paul Cathedral stairs…

the Brits like their kings/queens, century old masochism known there euphemistically as ‘stiff upper lip’ :)…

Why is this news?

The intonation of the main speaker, and also the way the others are not engaging with him, suggests to me that he is either a shilling short of the full pound or slightly under the influence.

Occupy Monty Python!

Where’s the pepper spray and cattle prods when you need them?

YiZhangZhe on April 25, 2012 at 7:16 PM

They were engaging him, and what makes you think the others aren’t drunk/high too?

It’s not news exactly, cause we’ve known all of this about Occupy since the beginning now, but it’s still interesting to note as a counter to all the BS out there about the movement.

Zombie Churchill just vomited, and wonders why he ave the Island.

Every country has its riff-raff – unfortunately.

Progressive liberalism is a vile cancer that respects no borders.

I need to learn to swear in English.

KOOLAID2 on April 25, 2012 at 8:15 PM

No, you don’t – seriously. The English possess the amazing ability to make a ten word statement, containing seven swear words – without repeating one. (It gets very boring after a short while).

OldEnglish on April 25, 2012 at 8:27 PM

wtf is up with some of these morons covering up their heads with bandanas? So no one can identify the perp in a violent crime?

JetBoy on April 25, 2012 at 9:17 PM

Jokers. All of them.

Superstar mouse.

I’ll bet you’re soooooo mad.

Sort of a warm-weather substitute for a hoodie.

It’s all playacting…bandannas around their head, because they’re…like……revolutionaries or something, man.

All a big game, a joke.

Dreadnought on April 25, 2012 at 10:52 PM

Welcome to New Britain!

These people are high/drunk and have no fear of the police.

Neither should you fear being rescued by the British Police should they decide to call you and your family a c*** and “bash” you up.

Have a nice day now.

If you and your family do happen to get called c***s and “bash”ed up, do not fear. It will be on CCTV.

In the early 90′s I went to a large wrestling event in London. The place was full of parents with their young kids. And I swear, every parent was screaming obscenities at each other in front of their children. It was no holds barred. “F-ing sit down you f-ing c**t, or arl cam over there and f-ing kick your f-ing face off” – “f**k off! ‘Oo the hell are you calling a f-ing c**t you f-ing c**t? Cam over ‘ere then if you think you’re f-ing hard enough you w*nker.”

And the parents were screaming at their kids the same way.

In London, they pepper sentences with “f-ing” the same way American girls pepper them with “like.” It’s exactly the same kind of verbal tic.

Never got that whole thing about the Yobs and their obsession Burberry plaid hats and scarfs

MunDane68 on April 25, 2012 at 11:12 PM

Considering its London, I’m genuinely surprised they’re speaking English.

Smack rats, need I say more?

EnglishRogue on April 26, 2012 at 7:21 AM

Ah, now we the violence inherent in the system.
