Occupy Birmingham protester claiming to be ex-serviceman shocker

#1
I'm not an army guy but thought some of you might find this biased-BBC posting quite amusing.

It's basically from the BBC West Midlands 9am phone-in show interviewing one of the Occupy Birmingham protesters who claims he is an ex-serviceman, but came unstuck when a real soldier phones in and asks him what regiment he was in.

I think these protesters have been a bloody nuisance and what was particularly annoying is the way the leftist BBC let him spout his crap virtually unchallenged...

Why in the name of everything Holy would anyone want to 'occupy Birmingam'? If is was flatten/destroy/bomb Birmingham then I could have a degree of sympathy.

LOL ditto Bradford. For the 100th year running. You don't seem that bothered by it. I know I'd be complaining like fuck at the beeb for allowing some crusty to get the on the air in order to pretend he was in the Royal Green Jackets, just to score some cheap political points. In additional to allowing outright lies, it's terrible journalism.

If he was really in the RGJ, he wouldn't occupy Birmingham, he'd batter it to death with a shovel before escaping in his Mini-Moke. Everyone knows that, you were the only one he fooled.

I lifted this from the BBC website


I've tried emailing ARRSE but I don't think their contact form is working properly (I get an odd message when I click send). Do you know anyone over there - perhaps from the old Royal Green Jackets or one of the new Rifles battalions - who might like to offer a comment about this?

Yes. I think he needs walting big style. I met someone similar who was full of it, but was outed by some ex-squaddies who where with us. A simple "what regiment?" did the trick. But the beeb seem to be giving pricks like Chico free rein.

It sounds quite funny. Well done the BBC for bringing chucklesomeness and frivolity to the world.

LOL they're not the BBC and they're not journos. I understand your sentiments towards the beeb perfectly tho...

He claims to be from 42nd RGJ. He came out of the RGJ 6 months ago... making him the last active member of that unit by a good 4 years.

I wonder if he's read up on the RGJ and got confused... the RGJ did form from the 43rd and 52nd Regiments. He's wearig lightweights to get married in too (in the wedding video, if that is him).

Serious basket case btloi
