    Sadly Dave, John started the interview by saying "I was having a fag". This will obviously lead to the full weight of the law being brought down to bear on him, resulting in a fine, public denouncement and a lengthy prison sentence.

    He will be unable to get Legal Aid of course, as that will no doubt be being used up by the terrorist he jumped on top of.

    Yes Mike, it was a bit ironic that the working class hero was ‘having a fag’ before he sprang into action, the very people that the government are seeking to wipe out. Scotland’s first minister said, ‘He was delighted at the public’s response to the attacks, particularly Scotland’s muslim community,’ .. I don’t know what the muslim community actually did, but I don’t think John is one of them .. no words of congratulations for the smoker.

    The local Muslim leaders quickly and unequivocally denounced the actions as in no way representative of the thoughts of the moderate majority – that’s what they did. Both Radio Five Live and BBC News 24 had run interviews with such leaders within a couple of hours of the attempted attack.

    Well I was watching the news all day and I never saw any such interview ..the only people that were interviewed was our have-a-go-smoker John and a skinny old bird with a tan .. I must have missed that bit, on news24, the channel I was watching all day.

    Erratum: may have been Sky News – the hotel in which we were staying was channel-hopping a bit – but a statement there most certainly was.

    Davros…….I think you make the mistake of listening to anything that baw-bag Alex Salmon has to say.

    Hoewever, if you are going to dissect his words, then perhaps he had yer man Smeaton covered by the phrase “……delighted by the public’s response……………”? Just because he made for the best interviewee, doesnt mean Johnboy tackled them single-handed.

    Also, there is a wider context to appreciate…….which is probably why Fattie made mention of the Scottish Islamic community.

    Actual quotes from John Smeaton;

    The interviewer asked "What message do you have for the bombers?" –
    John replied………. "This is unacceptable, this is Glasgow ….. if they want tae come tae glasgow, then we’ll just set about them"
    John also did an interview on CNN and they asked how he restrained the guy and he said ….
    "Me and other folk were just tryin tae get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him" ! :lol:
