Epic rants

Keegan’s rant with Newcastle was indeed special but it put the title straight in to the Govan Piss Cans hands. Mind games and war of words is a speciality of his.
That’s not what they’re protesting against though. They’re not protesting against the existence of bloody oil. That would be stupid.

They’re protesting the approval of new fossil fuel licensing.

I don’t like JSO’s tactics at all but this man ranting on just sounds thick as mince. If he can’t even be bothered to read the very first line on their website then maybe he should get off his soap box.

Yet another person who thinks “Oh you criticise society yet you are part of society?” is some kind of smart gotchya that nobody has ever thought of before. The stuff of intellectual featherweights.
Just Stop Oil opposes the government granting new fossil fuel licensing and production agreements on its website, it calls for the government to stop all future consents and licensing agreements related to the development, exploration, and production of fossil fuels. They are being naive imo.

He might sound "thick as mince" to you but his view is correct, we need oil to carry on our way of life, and therefore we need to find new oil.
Everything that is manufactured depends on oil. Machines cannot operate without oil.
Also oil is needed as a component part of many materials we use every day, like the plastic case that houses your computer. To say we should only look to wind farms is nonsensical in the manufacturing industry.
It's impossible to manufacture without oil.
Without oil the world as we know it would grind to a rapid halt.
I'm all for conserving oil and not wasting it as we do on certain human behaviors (especially by the mega rich) but we will need oil for many many decades to come.

Maybe it's the protestors that are "thick as mince" blocking roads, wrecking sporting events, winding people up and disrupting everyone's life. It's definitely not a great way to endear people to your cause.
Really isn’t an epic rant more a great bore. Imagine him down the pub clearing the room with his opinion.

Love the thread by the way!

It's a good one though. Somebody like many pushed to the end of his tether and venting. The fact he does it in a more controlled and eloquent way doesn't diminish it's impact.
