Reminds me of someone's post about Blunkett rating "offending people" alongside murder.

Of course he just be charged. Remember, you're not allowed to have an opinion of your own, and should always read the media to find out what you think.

Remember:
* Little girls are sacred. Anyone who doesn't like little girls is a peadophile
* You should eat a 5kg steak at least once a day
* You *must* be married before you are 25 years and three months old
* All gay men are wonderful
* Everyone likes snow

Mad
