The terrorists who weren’t

More teenage funsters on the train this morning. What is this, the school holidays?

They got into the rear cab of the train, and apparently found the button to work the microphone, if nothing else.

A very half-hearted attempt to do the impersonate-the-terrorists bit. Too much swearing to be plausible.

Rather than “You f—ing motherf—ers, there’s a bomb on your f—ing train”, they might have done better with something about Western infidels or something. As well as choosing a spokesman whose voice wasn’t breaking.

And of course you should speak clearly and not shout into the microphone if you want your diatribe to be clearly understood.

As it was, nobody took any notice.

Hmm some of these teenagers just dont know what a terrorizing experience a train load of passangers can be if they get delayed because a bunch of idiots. Marcin holding up train ticket “I’ll paper cut you with my ticket you train stoping teenage infidel”

OTOH what if it were to be some terrorists? Ignore the problem and it will go away? hmm the new connex policy (or was it the old?) “we just dont care what happens on our trains”.
