What the hell is wrong with these people?

That's embarrassing. What goes through an adults head to think that behaviour is in any way acceptable?

With that being a Chelsea game, it's no surprise this sort of stuff went on, as they seem to have some sort of link with the blue team up here, and also their country cousins in Edinburgh. I wonder what it is that links them all? I couldn't possibly hazard a guess...

I've been away for quite a while, as some of you may know, but I'm back now and I'd totally forgotten all about this type of crap.

At the moment I'm living in Cowden temporarily, which is a bit of a hotbed for this sort of thing.

I was at work the other night and heard one of my colleagues (a grown adult man, and a pretty nice guy for the most part) walking around with his earphones in and singing "Derry's Walls" under his breath, possibly without realising it. So, not only was he singing it, but it's presumably on his Spotify playlist as well,  along with who knows what other jolly ditties.

I wouldn't say I was completely shocked, but it was a bit of an unpleasant surprise, having managed to avoid it for a very long time.

What it proved to me is that generation after generation are being poisoned with this nonsense (this guy is half my age) and I wouldn't be surprised if his kids know all the words too.

I don't know what the solution is, if there is one, and far better minds than mine have tried and failed over the years to stamp it out.

As for the muppet in the video, I think Dave's words posted above pretty much sum it up.

In the words of CSN, "Teach your children well"

What else can you do on a personal level?

Utterly boak inducing.

AWP having lived abroad most of my life I have obviously had this type of conversation with various people and most of them have trouble understanding what it is all about and quite often they say why does the media not call them out for it and my reply tends to be they are scared because they will lose much of their advertising revenue. The stock answer from the ugly sisters is usually "we are doing something about it" but in my opinion it is very little.
