‘Negotiating with your hands’ finally reaches Britain

Occupy London takes over empty UBS bank

Protesters take over massive empty building in central London. Police arrive with machine guns. I wonder how much more empty office space there is in the crapital? HPCers should be in favour; if more people start occupying empty buildings for free then rents and prices will surely fall!

  • Walked past one of the ‘occupy’ camps this morning in the city – you couldn’t help but feel that they are just a bunch of pathetic un-washed ‘new age’ losers..

    Pallid, stressed people who really ought to take more time off – I used to work there, many years ago, but would never go back..

    versus the ‘winners’ who bought the uk and the world to its financial knees

    don’t forget the anti globalisation brigade of unwashed ‘losers’ turned out to be right

  • It seems that several thousand unwashed new age losers were marching across Brooklyn bridge last night. There were also pepper-sprayed octogenarians to offend one’s aesthetic sensibilities.

  • Consider the following:

    How do the protestors live on a day by day basis?

    3 options:

    1. They have jobs which allow them to take time off or leave of absence, in other words jobs which aren’t contributing to the economy.

    2. They have an unearned source of income, therefore they don’t contribute to the economy.

    3. They are on some sort of benefit, again they don’t contribute to the economy and the majority of HPC’ers are paying for this, which of course I’m sure you’re all delighted to do.

    Bottom line is, they’re no better than the parasites in the financial sector that they’re protesting about, both sides couldn’t give a tinker’s f*rt about Joe Public, it’s about time people of all political hues woke up to this.

  • 4. They have never been able to find a job because the economy has been wrecked.
    5. They have lost their jobs because the economy has been wrecked.
    6. They are retired, like the pepper-sprayed pensioners.
    7. They would rather be poor than work for corrupt, destructive or dysfunctional organisations and so are self-employed.

    You could argue that they are doing us a service, risking arrest and harrassment to try to effect some changes that are sorely needed. I mean, if you are just a “benefit scrounger” then just stay at home in front of the widescreen, right?

  • excellent riposte nickb.

    personally I am happy to pay for them. If they worked they wouldnt have the time to stand up for the rights that I myself have no time to defend. Good to em. In fact, I think they should get double benefits to the detriment of those on benefits who sit at home playing xbox all day and breathing air for which a better use could be found.

    Good for you, if you’re happy to pay for them.

    Just don’t complain about how bad things are and how you’ve never had it so bad, you’ve obviously got money to spare.

    I’m glad someone is trying to make a point, the only problem is I expect most of them think that this is all the fault of the Tories and their non-existent cuts, and that the solution is another Labour government.

    I’m not sure how many grasp the bigger picture, which includes mismanagement of this country and it’s monetary system by multiple governments over multiple decades (but especially Blair and Brown), in addition to a corrupt and unaccountable financial sector that has been allowed to run wild.

    @10 – Actually what the hell am I moaning about. Let’s get another Labour government in ASAP and steam roller this baby over the inevitable finish line that much quicker. Go Protesters! No to the Non-Cuts!
