Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
As much as I condemn the pouring of slurry over public figures, or indeed public idiots, I think Kilroy has somewhat oversold his case:
As a result of an unprovoked attack, I am now very apprehensive about future public appearances and worried about my personal safety.
I dread to think what the consequences could have been if the person had been in possession of a knife or other lethal weapon.
My wife and daughter have been extremely upset about the incident and my wife is considering ‘risk assessment’ to reduce the risk of future incidents occurring.
If he worries that much over a bit of poo, I really hope he doesn’t get into any serious political power. He clearly has no sense of proportion. And I can’t believe that my 300th post has been spent commenting on this wally.
