Glasgow airport

If this had happened in a US airport, compared to Glasgow

Eyewitness accounts:
America:"Oh my God! There was a man on fire, he was running about, i just ran for my life. I thought i was gonna die, he got so close to me"
Glasgow "C*nt wis running aboot on fire, so a ran up n gave him a good boot, then decked him"

America:" I just wanna get home, away from here. I just wanna get home, I thought i was gonna die"
Glasgow:" here shug, am no leaving here till am oan a in' plane!"

America:" there was pandemonium, people were running in all directions, we didn't know what was happening thought i was gonna die"
Glasgow:"F***** this fir a kerry oan, moan we'll get a pint in"

America:" We thought he was gonna blow us all up he had a gas canister, and was trying to get into his trunk, I thought we were gonna die, I just ran for my life"
Glasgow:"a swaggered by the motor that wis on fire, and the dafty couldnae even open his boot, he wis in fire annaw so a ran up n gave him a good boot to the baws"

America: there was this huge explosion, it sounded like war, I thought i was gonna die"
Glasgow:" There wis a bang, yi know when yi throw BO basher intae a fire itwis like that"

[John Stenhouse] America:" I'm too traumatized even to speak, I thought i was gonna die"
Glasgow "here mate, gies 2 minutes till a phone ma auld dear, if am gonna be oan the telly a want her tae tape it"

& finally, two quotes from an eye-witness.........john smeaton (these are real)

John just surpassed himself on the National ITV new
The interviewer asked "What message do you have for the bombers" - he replied "This is Glasgow we'll just set about you"

John done an interview on cnn and they asked how he restrained the guy and he said "me and other folk were just tryin 2 get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him" !

Re: Glasgow airport

With the campaign for John up to at least 500beers already at the Glasgow Holiday Inn (see previous link) two things will happen:

a) Next time he will pee on the pyro-terrorist

and

b) "Have-a-Go-Hero's Alcohol-Shame" is already being set up on the News of The World typeset for six months hence.

Re: Glasgow airport

To the tune of Flower of Scotland, words by Fiona:

O John of Smeaton
When will we see your like again
That fought and panned in
two al qaeda men
And stood against him
Osama’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again


The airport’s bare now
And cherokee’s lie burnt and still
O’er land that is saved now
Which brave sir smeato held
And stood against him
Osama’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again


Those days are passed now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again
That stood against him
Osama’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

Re: Glasgow airport

It reminds me of those old blokes in a pub in Manchester who were told to evacuate it in the aftermath of the 96 IRA bombing and told the police that they drank there when the Lutwaffe was bombing the city so no way they were going to run. I just love the way the Brits react to that kind of stuff

But there's a difference between the English and the Scots - we just do the stiff upper lip thing while the Jocks go the whole way and have a go - any guy that can wear a skirt in sub-zero temperatures is harder than me .

Re: Glasgow airport

As a fellow Scot, I did feel a degree of pride at his no-nonsense attitude to getting terrorism solved, until he managed to show himself up as a NED (Non Educated Delinquant for those of you who don't 'parliamo Glasgow') by saying the bang was like when he threw a deoderant can onto a bonfire!
What could have been the next 'Braveheart moment' instead turns out to be yet another sad indictment on our rapidly declining society!

Re: Glasgow airport

Banjoed has now officially been replaced by "Smeato'd" ... marvellous tale from Paisley Road West ....

also am sure that this is the first time young John has been thanked by the Polis.

Re: Glasgow airport

text message doing the rounds.

8 foreign Doctors, 3 bombs no deaths.
Harold Shipman, 1 Doctor, 1 syringe 300 deaths.

Makes you almost proud to be British.

Re: Glasgow airport

Rabbie Burns wrote the thoughtful and prescient work 'Ode tae John
Smeaton' It goes like this:

'Twas by the Inch o' Abbots
Oor Johnny walked one day
When he saw a sicht that troubled him
Far more that he could say

A bearded muslim b*stard
Wiz doin' what he'd planned
And intae Glesca's airport
A Cherokee he'd rammed.

A big Glaswegian polis
Came forward tae assist
He thocht "a wumman driver"
Or mebbe someone pished

But tae his shock nae drunken Jock
Emerged tae grasp his haund
But a flamin' Arab loony
Frae Al Qaeda's band

The mad Islamist nut-case
Had set hissel' ablaze
And swung oot at the polis
Wi' punches tae the face

"Noo that's no richt," wur Johnny cried
And sallied tae the fray
A left hook and a heid butt
Required tae save the day.

Noo listen up Bin Laden
Yir sort's nae wanted here
Imported English radicals
We Scotsmen nevvur fear

Oor home-grown Glesca Asians
Will have nae bluidy truck
So tak yer worldwide jihad
An get yersel tae F*c

Re: Glasgow airport

One of the Glasgow bombers Singed Majeep is complaining that all he gets in hospital to eat is haggis, neeps and tatties. What the heck does he expect in the burns unit?
----------------

Did you know there is a new website for muslim terrorists to get in touch with their old pals? It's at www.friends-reignited.com

----------------

For sale, Green Cherokee Jeep, 20000 miles one careful owner, goes like a bomb!

Re: Glasgow airport

Smeatos diary


Quote:
July 28 Ibrox Park I've got a month off work to recover from the shock after the attacks. Today I have been invited to walk out on the pitch at Ibrox Park before a pre-season friendly between Rangers and Chelsea. I'm a die-hard Rangers fan, so this is massive for me. Fifty-five thousand Rangers fans chanting my name - a wall of sound right in your face. It's unbelievable. And we win 2:0 as well.

Rule 1 You've got to have a moral ground. You've got to know the difference between what's right and what's wrong. A policeman being kicked around: that's wrong.
