…and sanctimonious VirtueSignallers act as if he’d demanded an orphan child’s puppy be set alight to warm his feet:
Mathew Read, who describes himself as a bowling alley general manager, was called out by Twitter users for being insensitive, but he said: ‘If I’m stuck here it’s their duty to look after me. It’s not like what I say can bring them back is it?‘.
His comments sparked outrage on social media, for which he later apologised, with one user saying: ‘Someone died and he’s after free food – what a world we live in.’
Why on earth do none of these idiots ever seem to worry about the effect on the driver of the train? Are they too busy polishing their own halos?
There’s a lot of talk about making things ‘socially unacceptable’ – drink driving, smoking, eating junk food to excess and not caring enough to select FairTrade coffee.
So given that there are plenty of ways to kill yourself quietly and in a manner that doesn’t affect others unduly, why don’t we start by calling these people selfish attention-seekers…?
