He has no class.

Johnny Rotten is more of a gentleman :

Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten attacks hate mobs celebrating Baroness Thatcher's death as 'loathsome' and calls for respect

Quote:
John Lydon says he will not be former prime minister's 'enemy in death'
Says show the dead respect and finds her death parties 'loathsome'


Former Sex Pistol John Lydon says those now celebrating Margaret Thatcher's death are 'loathsome'.

Lydon, famously known as Johnny Rotten when he was the singer in Punk icons The Sex Pistols back in the 1970s as Maggie was rising to power, added: 'I'm not going to dance on her grave.'

He said: 'I was her enemy in her life but I will not be her enemy in her death.'

He also denied being a mysogynist and a Nazi following a controversial appearance this week on Aussie TV show, The Project.

During the interview he told presenter Carrie Bickmore: 'Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Now listen, when a man is talking do not interrupt.'

He also gave a wave during the interview, which has been misinterpreted by some in the Aussie media as a Nazi salute.

John spoke about Baroness Thatcher's death when he arrived at Sydney's domestic airport on Wednesday from Brisbane ahead of his band Public Image Limited's performance in the city that night.

The 57-year-old said: 'I'm not happy about the boo boo parties.

'When someone dies, give them respect. Enemy or not. I can't be listening to folk who do that.

'What kind of politics are they offering me? You dance on another person's grave? That's loathsome.'

Hey mcgruff, what are some things you like about Thatcher? After all, no one is entirely evil.


Thatcher was a crass, narcissistic opportunist. What was there to like?

:lol: All I need to do with people like you is speak the unvarnished truth plainly and clearly. You don't know how to cope with that.

That might be best. However, we were not talking about unions, like you claim. We were talking about the revellers at some street parties.

Actually an ongoing thing in this thread has been unions because if you don't understand the unions you don't understand Thatcher and understand the poll tax even less

are you even posting in the correct thread because each of your replies becomes less and less associated with the flow or topic

You forgot the whole union thing. Quite frankly they were taking the piss at the time.


and continually since then, you have convinently never answered what this perpetual question was asking which myself john-boy and a good few others keep pointing out to you. it is you that cannot follow a simple thread

So, if I haven't answered, you are correct but, if I have answered, you're comment above would be wrong? Is that right?

Me. I suspect McGuffin didn't. I also suspect unless he pulls his head in he's in for a holiday from this place :P

Yeah everyone else is so polite apart from me. They live for the free discussion of ideas and love to encounter different world-views to their own. They never say anything mean or stupid and they never whine hypocritically when they're pulled up about something which of course they never said.

Holiday? Not going to happen. If some people want to create a right-wing ghetto they'll have to go and do it elsewhere.

You have yet to answer. I'll tell you where I was. I was living in Irvine, California.

Good for you.

Bad for them.

You seem determined to take over Noob's human genome project. Are you sure you really want to go there..? You'd look like an awful hypocrite if you were to insist that other people are required to have direct, personal experience of anything they want to talk about and then failed to apply the same rigorous standards to your own comments. Even Noob seems finally to have figured that one out.

Go and read the thread. You didn't get the answer you want but you did get an answer. (a) it's irrelevant and (b) what personal information I choose to give out to psychic, ass-talking internet cannibals is my business.
