Oh... and I thought first its' your Boris that done it ;-)

Definitely in character if the felines in question were Ted and Boris!

Let he who is without sin cast the first sto... Oh no... On second thoughts, just stop throwing stones everybody! Which youngster skulking in the cells tonight is to be Mayor of London 2025, I wonder. And is our future prime minister looking down at her trainers, scraped along the ground while being arrested, and thinking: "Ruined innit."? I would not be in the least surprised (and I have some guilty secrets of youth myself, I confess... well no, I don't confess cos I aint telling.) [And word verification here is TedOopie, which is worrying. Give Ted a big pat from me and tell him I think he's a lovely fellow]

Ah if that rule was applied then only Jesus and the Virgin Mary wold be rioting.. Lord help the rosary bead stores bakeries and fishmongers!

I bet you were a right scallywag in your youth Andrew!

"...0nly Jesus and the Virgin Mary would be rioting..."

Now there's some CCTV footage I'd like to see on youtube. I suspect it would be a fairly timid affair... although hang on... Jesus did have a record of 'turning over all the tables of the money-changers in the temple' or something, didn't he? Sounds a bit like trashing the High Street to me. Hmmm.... Interesting thought... As far as I know the Virgin Mary hasn't got any rioting "form" though, but more diligent religious scholars than me may know otherwise.

That's a point. jesus would have stopped the City. I would love to see him run riot in the Square Mile

As for Mary, I hear thell that she is pretty tasty in a fight. She is handy with with a motorbike chain

Andrew said...

However... I can't really envisage Jesus covering himself up with his white hoodie and grabbing himself a nice pair of white trainers, a blackberry and a flat screen TV.

Your research on Mary is intriguing. A Hell's Angels connection? Are you sure you've got the right Mary there, and not getting confused with that Mizz Magdalene character?

Me neither Andrew but as the head of an anarchist grop maybe.

There are numerous accounts of Mary engaging in violent activities. In the apocrypha of the apostle Jebediah, there is mention of a fight she had with three Roman centurions during which she landed two in the gutter and whacked the testicles of the third back into his abdomen. Chapter 6, verse ii of the Apocrypha say:

And Mary siad unto the centurions "Who are you looking at wankers? Whereupon she gave two a good lathering sending them unto the gutter..."

In Verse 8 "And then Mary spake unto the third Centurion verily ye are going home in a fucking chariot, then kicked hard in the man root sending his plums unto his innards."

Fascinating scholarship there Jams. Thanks. My respect for the lady has multiplied greatly.

I am glad to hear it Andrew, She was less the Virgin Mary than the Grrgin Mary!

I enjoyed reading Nathaniel Tapley's letter to the PM's parents. Have you read it?

It's quite a polemic isn't it Susan
