THAT ANGRY BRIGADE STATEMENT – THANK FUCK FOR A BIT OF PASSION

I’m with Canary Boy on this:  ‘Dave stop being such a miserable bastard and take it in the spirit that’s it meant. I’m from the south from but those words were mighty.

For fuck sake it’s a spirited, passionate, funny from the gut rant and all the better for it. A textual analysis whinging about ‘South’ or ‘Sunderland’ entirely misses the point – christ we can’t surely be that much up our po-faced arses. Let the Angry Brigade message from Wallsend spread – It’s far more likely to find resonance than most political manifestos. Change it, add to it, let there be a hundred Angry Brigades – for fuck sake we need some fucking anger don’t we. Message to Wallsend Angry Brigade – IF YOU WANT PEACE PREPARE FOR WAR – SEE YOU AT ETON IN SEPTEMBER

AND NOW THIS FROM BARNSDALE ANGRY BRIGADE:

let there be a hundred Angry Brigades”

Amen to that! We need to start informal regional ABs – Doncaster Angry Brigade, Norfolk Angry Brigade, Newcastle Angry Brigade, etc., etc. They could each create their own communiques, posters, flyers, videos, blogs, etc, each with their own unique spin on things. It would be pretty easy to do and would make for some very entertaining propaganda

    The first communique from the Teddington Litle Bit Cross Patch Brigade will be issued just as soon as I can remember where I put the John Bull set.

    It’s a great statement – a bit of humour chucked in, and it sounds like it’s been written by human beings. What a welcome change from the endless wanky bollocks about horizontal fucking spaces this and non-patriarchal that, and no farting during the speech from the boring cunt with a face like a smacked arse and a kilo of Zapatista coffee shoved up his arse..

    I am too fucking tired and browbeaten by the system to be angry all the time, can we have a totally miffed or even slightly miffed sub-group ..

  6. We’ve started working on an idea for posters and flyers…
