Yes, yes people I have emerged from my self realised obscurity to bestow knowledge on all headz. Used ta be out and about now strictly lying low dispensing wisdom.
Too much going down to stay quiet, now all of us have to rise up and speak truth to power.

There has to be more to us than dhal roti and Nokia phones...

Lad was wearing this tonight at work - was
on my way out so didn't get chance to talk
too much to him. When I asked him why
he was wearing it he didn't give me much
of a reply. Not the best time to be walking
around with this kind of sentiment on da
back of your jacket but will catch up wit
him soon before he gets picked up!

Is 'berk' an option? (sigh)

I was going to make some comment about how certain actions maybe not being such a good idea at this time; but then I realised that, if I were a teenager (especially of asian extraction) right now, especially in High Wycombe, I'd be pushing it too. I'd want police attention. I'd want to be picked up so I could say, loudly and right in their faces, "fuck you officer, I'm a demonstrably innocent citizen and how dare you assume otherwise just becuase of what I'm wearing". But I've got into very physical trouble becuase of my choice of provocative clothing in the past, so perhaps I'm not unbiased in this. (people only ever see the swastika, never the words or the red line)

I dunno. That jacket could go a few ways, depending on how the kid thought through it. Soldiers don't always fight with violence, sometimes they fight with peace, although the teenager who understands how fighting with peace works is a rare one indeed...

Yeah, it's a tad retarded, but then it's the prerogative of the teenager to do dumb-assed shit. Still, guy's got balls of steel.

DocD says:

Mat, a bit of me agrees wit you but the seriousness of da current climate means that this kid is likely to get pulled up by over zealous cops and plain clothes officers which could lead to him being criminalised.

The whole soldiers for peace is actually rooted in our history through groups such as the Khudai Khidmatgar otherwise known as the Red shirts who were non-violent followers of Badshah Khan. This whole part of history is largely forgotten but these were non-violent Muslims who challenged British control of Afghanistan. I am in the process of researching his life to write a screenplay. However don't think this chap was on dis tip when he put this jacket on.

Absolutely, I appreciate that (in no small way becuase I'm not a teenager any more), but in his situation and at his age, I'd have probably done the same thing.

Those red shirt guys sound pretty cool though, good luck with the screenplay.
