Young? Bored? Not very intelligent? Amateurish? Lacking determination?

From their defence

But he told the Old Bailey: “This is a group of young men who are young, who are bored, not particularly intellectual an over reacted in a way that is wrong and in a way that is criminal.”
Tsk, tsk, I dunno, young 'uns these days, eh?

Slap their wrists, tell 'em not to do it again and send them on their way.

It's the only solution...

to be fair it is probably very boring pulling a 72 hour shift at your parents corner shop.
It's merely a defence ploy. An attempt to divert the Jury away from the fact that his client(s) are rabid extremist fuckwits. The other favourite is along the lines of "My Client was only in Bosnia/Chechnya/Iraq/Afghanistan as he was delivering aid for a Charidee when he sustained the GSW to his chest / shrapnel wounds to his legs" along with "Any items the Prosecution seek to prove to be 'intended for terrorist use' are merely souvenirs..."

Yeah, course they fucking are sweetheart.

Edited to add. This is usually the normal line (the original bored etc) when though the deadly intent is apparent, the actual Operation is so gobsmackingly amateurish, it makes the Girl Guides look like 22 SAS. Apparently, it's just 'Not British' to prosecute Incompetent, uneducated, ignorant and just plain thick Al Qaeda Wannabees to the fullest extent of the Law. Some of you think Four Lions is a Comedy. It's a fucking Documentary!
I wish the Telegraph would cease employing illiterates.

A note by the group said the planned outrage was a reaction to the blasphemy of the Prophet Mohammed.
Unless the Telegraph's suggesting that the Prophet Mohammed is a blasphemer, perhaps the journo should have written 'blasphemy against the Prophet Mohammed'.
Phew. A thread about moslamics.

Reading the thread title, I thought some barsteward was summarising my career.


I took it to mean 'Did the journalist make a fuck-up, or did he report what the miscreant said?'
Some defense, nearly every fight I ever started was a result of it being a bit of a slow evening. Never occurred to me that might be a good basis for a not guilty plea.
