Man freed after Kilroy slurry attack

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

By way of an update on my earlier post, I just thought I should blog this article.

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.
