My Tram Experience

Where oh where does one even begin with attempting to offer an opinion on this video. I don’t want to entirely spoil the #MyTramExperience for you. But I’ll say this. When people drivel on about how ‘multiculturalism’ has failed, what they really mean is that they understand this ladies point of view, and sincerely regret that her opinion is met with contempt. They might not know that that is what they mean. That’s just ignorance walking hand in hand with ignorance.

Not every Briton is like her. But far too many are. Suffice it to say, you can get a pretty good grasp of how well educated she is (or, rather, isn’t) within the first 30 seconds of the video. Shame. If she just kept her mouth closed, or at least stopped noises coming out of it, she’d be pretty hot. For a British lass, anyway. Although perhaps I shouldn’t be so judgemental. We don’t have the whole story here. What happened at the end? After all, if she shook them all by the hand before getting off the tram, then all’s well that ends well, right?

Pity these people. And mock them too. Mocking has entertainment value. Taking them seriously is a waste of time, and no deterrent. You will, hopefully, be pleased to know that the lady was later taken into custody. After the mocking, what to do next with her? Instant karma is always nice, but not always on hand to save the day. I vote that she be forced to share a carriage with the Peckham Terminator. I’m not even sure what he was on about, or on, in that video. I’m sure it was very wrong. But I liked the way that the heroic young videographers mocked him. It must be watched to the very end.

Edit: It shouldn’t be assumed that this is a sign of deteriorating standards of the youth of today. Rose tinted glasses are for fashionistas only. It’s always been this way. And some people never do quite grow out of it.

  1. I wonder what started the banter between those folks? If she was taken off the tram, what charges could they possibly charger her with in the PC land of yours?
    Is there a law for being a xxxx out in public? There is too much of this type of interplay nowadays for some reason, being civil and polite with manners has gone by way of the phonograph I believe……
    So much for diversity.

  2. Who knows, but she doesn’t appear to be ranting against anyone in particular. Just ranting. But I guess something must have set her off.

    Charges? Well I enjoyed reading of her arrest. But that’s an emotive response rather than an objective one. It’s always good to see a bit of karma. Breach of the peace would be the obvious charge.

    This article, from the ‘leftist Guardian’ comes closest to summing up my opinion. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/nov/29/my-tram-experience-croydon?cat=commentisfree&type=article

    PC? That’s a hugely overplayed and overrated word, you know. Sure, you’ll find it in the tabloids. It’s standard fodder. In real life, you have to look a lot harder.

    Diversity exists. That’s all there is to it.
