Black Friday

In response to

Exeter police patrols increased for 'Black Friday'

Every year I cringe when the Echo blazes a headline about "Black Friday".

What has it come to in this country when citizens battle one another on the street because they have been released from their jobs for a few weeks? Visitors to this country would be forgiven for thinking that this is some kind of sick April Fools joke! Sadly this is not the case, but an all pervading sickness is overwhelmingly evident in white working class British society today.

Isn't it time that we as a nation took time out to address just what it is that makes the proletariat behave in this fashion at which, in most other Christian countries is a time of peace and goodwill?

I for one will be spending the run up to Xmas in the relative safety of foreign climes, and if anyone out there wants a good session without feeling the need to kick the living daylights out of someone, I'd recommend you do the same.
