Citizens Arrest


#1

Anyone seen the BBC fella freak out and try to arrest a family in some shopping centre car park? Makes for interesting, uncomfortable viewing. Not sure how the dad kept his cool.

Link please

At first I thought it was pretty funny, but his rage and the language he uses is so uncomfortable to watch. Really horrible.


#5

Alright, Daily Mail, he worked with a guy on the BBC once. They’ve nothing to do with this.


#6

Oh wait, maybe I misread? Dunno, it seems a bit weird that his BBC job has much to do with it, TBH.


#7

This is about the time in the Mail comments section when someone mentions the cost of the license fee.


#8

It’s hilarious looking at it now, but at the time it must have been fucking awful for those involved. He’s a big lad and he’s going nuts at them. :frowning:


#9

christ :smile: he sounds just like basil fawlty in the video doesn’t he


#10

where he does the “and I tell you what!? you are too!” - is pure Fawlty.

wonder what they did?

fuck it I’m on his side.


#11

haha yeah, my first thought while I was watching it was ‘wow, how badly were they driving?’


#12

All of you laughing at him in this thread are under a citizen’s arrest


#13

“so are you, you plonker”

Very underrated part of the video IMO.


#14

Lost it when she started describing him as a plonker and recommending he see a doctor. Carry On film stuff.


#15

Do you know who he is? He’s Ronnie Pickering!


#16

#17

I wasn’t suggesting we dismantle the BBC off the back of his outburst.


#18

I think the Mail readership would probably have that guys back, tbh.


#19

But yes. This is super uncomfortable viewing. People “aching” from laughing online but he is a BIG fella and I woulda been very concerned for my family’s well being had he done the same to me.

Ha, sorry, I meant to be more jokey than it probably read. I am wary of how much the press like to tie things to the BBC though.

(That said, fuck their current affairs coverage these days.)
