How the hell can an alcoholic bum get so much air time, is the news in the borough so limited that this dole queue alocoholic becomes a cyberspace hero, people need to take a hard look around them, this bloke is one of those who sit around with his drunken mates in Grays Town Centre and in Grays Park spouting abuse to all and sundry, it is about time that he was ignored by those in the media instead of making him out to be some sort of hero.
