Mick Hucknall - deep political thinker

Maybe some of you will be lucky enough not to be aware of Mick Hucknall and his band, Simply Red. The rest of us will be all too familar with his rather weak white boy soul.

Anyway, what about this for a statement of the most staggering idiocy?:

"Copyright is fundamentally socialist - it is radical and redistributive, subversive even. How else would you describe a form of property that anyone can create out of nothing?" (Source).

Where to begin? Perhaps by noting that Socialism has never been particularly keen on protecting the property rights of individuals, but rather has always regarded them as being something to be used and abused for the 'greater good'...

Might I suggest that Socialism is what suits socialists.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 10:08 am

Yup. Shades of socialism being 'what Labour governments do'.

Morning C- Good target , ( where oh where do you get it all), I think Mick Hucknall is detestable musically , personally and gingerishly. Always hated his stuff and especially his camp whiny voice

Mornin' N. Hope Mrs N didn't have your guts for garters when you got home.

The truly bizarre thing about the corkscrew curled one is that he was one of the handful of prescient Mancs to attend the first Sex Pistols gig in those parts. True story.

The ginger haired cunt once tried to pick up my girlfriend, apparently he is a vile excuse of a human being and as thick as shit. Something you have quite rightly drawn attention to.
Give me the Revd Al Green any day.

Yes, a number of high profile ginges seem to fancy themselves as Lotharios. The possibly still more loathsome Evans attempts to hold court in a pub in Godalming, and one of my exes has had the pleasure of giving him the brush off.

The Reverend - now there's a fine singer.

How else would you describe a form of property that anyone can create out of nothing?

Dickhead. Capitalism is a system that creates wealth, utilising the hard work and creativity of individuals. In effect, all property is created out of nothing, that is the miracle of wealth CREATION.

Well said, Serf.

I don't know who he is. If you didn't listen to pop music, you wouldn't know who these stupid little fleas on society are.

IT - Amen.

OT but who cares about Mick Hucknall - I see in The Telegraph that there was a street fight in London in the wee hours of this morning and one person died.

It doesn't say who the participants in this fight were, so, given the mincing, cowardly new Telegraph, I am going to assume these are the same people who, across the Channel, have come to be known as "youths" - and in Oz as "youths of Mediterranean or Middle Eastern appearance".

Does anyone know?  

Anonymous verity said... 7:53 pm

A street fight in London involving 10 people and one who died, and it's not mentioned on the BBC? Why? Who were these 10 people? All it said in The Telegraph was, they weren't armed. But not who they were and why they were fighting and killing on a London street at 4 a.m.

Does anyone here know anything about this?  

Blogger Croydonian said... 8:01 pm

More details here.

Sounds like a road rage thing.  

Anonymous verity said... 8:11 pm

The Telegraph's got a longer story on it now. It seems this fellow pulled a driver out of a van and killed him. That sounds more personal than road rage, which wasn't suggested in The Telegraph piece. He killed one person, injured another member of the public who is in critical condition and seriously injured police officers and two ambulance medics.

He had apparently broken into a closed coffee shop and made himself a hot drink and then sat around ... that would indicate he was waiting for an appointment. The coffee shop owner, a Mr Khan, expressed disquiet over turning up and finding his door smashed in and the clues that someone had been sitting around inside waiting...

And, oh, at last the coyness drops away and we find he is "of Tunisian origin". Quelle surprise! Of course! The religion of peace!

If this had happened on the streets of London as little as 10 years ago, it would have been a huge story. Today, it's routine. Just wait until the Olympics and the denizens of that monstrous new mosque clash.

Also, Croydonian, come, come! Road rage at 4:30 a.m.? What is there to get pissed off about on a deserted street? And angry enough to kill one person, leave another critically injured and seriously wound seven others?

There's more to this story, that's for sure.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 8:38 pm

There were suggestions of mental illness on the part of our Mahgrebi friend too, so who knows?  

Anonymous verity said... 8:54 pm

"There were suggestions of mental illness on the part of our Mahgrebi friend too." Oh, gosh, ya think? He killed one person and sent several others to hospital ... hmmmmm, you could be right. Those are not really the acts of a rational man.

Drugs can make you crazy, so I understand.

What was he doing in Britain. Or was he a French "youth"? I still think there's way more to this story than meets the eye.

What was this Tunisian doing on the streets of London at 4:30 a.m.? Why did he break into closed up cafe and make himself a hot drink? Who was he waiting for? What went wrong?

Something tells me the police are holding something back.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 9:22 pm

Indeed, although there is always the philosophical nicety as to whether a multiple killer is necessarily mentally ill.

Still, vamos aver.  

Anonymous verity said... 9:34 pm

True. Vamos means 'let's go', of course, but what does 'aver' mean in this context?

Here's something else that is strange about this case. Where did these 10 murdered and injured people spring from at 4:30 a.m.? OK, the van driver was driving through, was dragged, for some reason, from his van and was murdered. (Was this who the killer was waiting for while having a cup of coffee?) And four of the people injured were police and medical workers. So that's five accounted for. But did this fellow, having just murdered someone, hang around waiting for the ambulances and the police to show instead of scarpering stat?

Again, it doesn't hang together.

But what about the other five? Where did they suddenly spring from and how did they get close enough to be injured? Were they trying to intervene? From reports, this man was tall and very well built and formidably strong ... I would have thought people would have known better than to have a go. Of course, they may have been undercover police.

I think there is something hinky about this story.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 10:54 am

My Hispanophone friends use vamos aver to mean 'we shall see'. My Spanish is limited to drink ordering and a few choice insults, so I've taken their word for it.

Agreed, it does all look a bit fishy.  

Anonymous verity said... 1:33 pm

I thought aver was a new word, but it's written a ver. (I think.)  

Blogger Croydonian said... 2:20 pm

Sorry, my bad.

Well, I see the Tunisian "of no fixed address" - so how did he get into Britain? - has been charged with the murder. These islamics go in for murder on the streets of civilised countries in a big way. Theo van Gogh comes to mind ...

The reimposition of the peine du mort for murder grows more urgent.

I see the 30-yr old Tunisian has been charged with murder. He is of "no fixed address" - so how did he get into Britain with no address to write on the form?

The reimposition of the peine du mort grows ever more urgent, with this islamic habit of committing revenge atrocities on the streets of civilised countries. Theo van Gogh comes to mind.

I'm sorry about the double posting. The first time I posted, it said "The page cannot be displayed." When I rewrote it and reposted, they both appeared at the same time. Apologies.
