John Smeaton (these are real) John just surpassed himself on the National ITV news. 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 to get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him" ! ---------------------- Police have named the two bombers from Glasgow as Sinjed Maheed, and Sinjed Majeep ----------------------- Actual quote from one of the apprehenders. "He was going crazy, just lashing out at everyone and babbling pish in a foreign language the whole time. I've heard people say since that he was shouting 'Allah!' but I didn't hear that. It just sounded like a lot of crap to me. Then I kicked him with full force right in the balls but he didn't go down. He just kept on babbling his rubbish" - Cabbie Alex McIlveen relates the tale of how he accosted a terrorist.
