They reckon its the 'business people's; them rich' who are at fault whilst they quaff their stolen rose wine and they want to show 'them that we can do what we want' ...

I'd love to have them with me 24/7 for a week, educate them then reinterview them after.

AIBU to think that I would not be wasting my time

SirAlan, I think that would be a good idea.

GretaGip Thu 11-Aug-11 20:19:26

Yup, it's a good idea.

But only if they're willing to give 110%.

as long as it doesnt turn them into 'slebs'!!

They need an education and I would be more than happy to give them one for a week; I have played out their innane commentry several times over the last few days and as I'm only a few miles from Croydon they would feel at home

nothing to lose is there?

It's Croydon not Croyden grin

SirSugar Thu 11-Aug-11 21:18:38

I know, I Know; often get confused as I used to work in place with croyden in the name blush

Iggly Thu 11-Aug-11 21:22:40

I did get annoyed when the BBC spelt it wrong - only because I'm originally from croydon (but not a looter!)

Iggly beat me to it...

AKA The Cronx grin

Fellow Croydonite + non-looter here too.

mayorquimby Thu 11-Aug-11 22:04:17

do you work at a euthanasia clinic?

(only joking)

Iggly Thu 11-Aug-11 22:05:03

grin the cronx grin

Nah, I don't want them here in my business interrupting my MNing and online shopping work

YANBU. They'd probably do your job better than you, and it's obviously not that hard work if you're twatting about on MN anyway.

Tbh I think it's exactly what they need. Total "immersion" in a different, more positive lifestyle rather than once a week month 1 hour contact with an "outreach worker" before being dumped back in to whichever depressing, hell-hole estate/family they're normally with. sad

AbsDuCroissant Fri 12-Aug-11 09:55:08

YANBU, particularly if your business is something like sewage-drain-giant-poo-clearer-outer. I'd like to see them handle that with a rose induced hangover. Mwah ha ha

The Cronx smile

I haven't heard this interview, where can I find it?

Is rose wine the quaff of choice then for today's rioter? Seems rather genteel, I would have thought voddie or Special Brew (which was actually made for Winston Churchill, can you believe?)
