I’m still not entirely clear on the reasons behind the London riots, but former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher thinks he has the answer… video games:
“We live in this age of violence – and I don’t care what other people say: Brutal TV and brutal video games are a reason for this pointless violence as well. The people are immune to violence, they are used to it. And if they get caught they aren’t punished the right way. The prisons are already full? Then build new ones!”
Bear in mind, this is a man who bludgeoned his brother with a cricket bat for talking too loudly. So he’s definitely an expert on why someone would want to partake in a bit of the ultraviolence. But something tells me that Noel isn’t a big gamer.
So then what’s his excuse for being a drunken psycho… wait, I think I know now.
